Damascus Middle School Students Present Christmas Concert

Members of the Damascus Middle School band and chorus entertained their audience with the annual Christmas concert on Tuesday, December 6 at Holston High School.  The concert included Christmas favorites like “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” and “Jingle Bells,” performed by the sixth-grade band under the direction of Mr. Bob Ballengee and Mr. Logan Childress.  Members of the sixth- and seventh-grade chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Sue Spirup, helped us to get into the Christmas spirit with songs like ”Deck the Halls” and “Sing We Now of Christmas.”  The seventh- and eighth-grade band, also directed by Mr. Logan Childress and Mr. Bob Ballengee, concluded the concert with their performance of “Christmas Couplet,” “Angels from the Realms of Glory,” and “Wassail March.”  During this busy time of year, Christmas music helps to remind us of the beauty of the season!
