Fredericksburg Middle School will perform two band concerts this month.
Both concerts are free and open to the public.
0n Tuesday, Dec. 10, from 6:30-8 p.m., the seventh and eighth grade band students will perform a Holiday Band Concert at the Fredericksburg High School Auditorium.
On Thursday, Dec. 12, from 6:30-8 p.m., the sixth grade band students will also perform a Holiday Band Concert at the FHS Auditorium.
According to FMS director of bands Dani Rauschuber, The bands are being split up to allow more time for the sixth grade students to show off what they do on a daily basis and to allow for more close-up opportunities for the parents.
Rauschuber said the bands would be performing many holiday favorites, including, but not limited to, Sleigh Ride and Celtic Bell Carol (a different take on Carol of the Bells).
The band director’s new assistant for the middle school bands is Jason Younts, who also is directing the seventh grade band.
