DHS concert set

Staff reports

Music students at Douglas High School have plenty of holiday plans.

Saturday at the FBLA Holiday Craft at Douglas, the DHS music department will take pictures of kids with Santa.

Cost of the photos is $5 each or two for $7. The activity is a fund-raiser for the music department, said band director Bill Zabelsky.

Douglas High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) will hold the Holiday Craft Fair, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Douglas High on Highway 88.

The 15th annual fair will have over 200 booths consisting of crafts and food. Entry to the fair is a 50 cent donation to the March of Dimes.

The annual winter concert will be held Dec. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the DHS commons. The band, under the direction of Zabelsky, will play Pachelbel’s “Canon,” Mussorgsky’s “Great Gate of Kiev” and “Hanukkah Holiday.”

The jazz band will feature three vocalists, Nick Thomas with “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” Jesse Whitaker with “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow” and Jennifer Zabelsky and “White Christmas.”

Zabelsky will also direct the Madrigal Singers in their versions of a number of traditional Christmas carols.

The DHS choirs, Image and Nightingales, are directed by the new choral director and French teacher Kirsten Gleissner. Image is a show choir and members dance as well as sing during their portion of the concert.

Christine Smith, harpist, will accompany the DHS choir.

Finales will include the choirs with “And the Glory of God,” from Handel’s “Messiah,” and the band’s “Christmas Finale,” which incorporates three Christmas carols.

The public is invited. Cost is $3 per person at the door. To reserve seats in the first three rows, call Zabelsky or Gleissner at 782-5136 (Douglas High). Reserved seating is $5 per person.

Refreshments will be served.
