Four numbers were performed by the Junior High Band: “Up On the Housetop,” “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Nicholas Variations” (conducted by senior Dawson Havens), and “Fum, Fum, Fum.”

Student band The Faux Paws performed “Underneath the Tree,” featuring vocals by Nicole Paolella, and “Merry Christmas, Baby,” featuring vocals by Paige Kilby.

The LHS Choir performed “The First Noel,” “Long Ago (In the Bleak Midwinter)” and “No Room” (with percussion by Dawson Havens.

The LHS Concert Band began with “Christmas Parade Sequence” (led by Drum Major Emalee Breeden), “March of the Sad Santas” and “Carol of the Bells.” The final number of the evening was “White Christmas” and was a collaboration between the LHS Concert Choir and the LHS Concert Band.
