Eddie's Winter Concert




Here are four video of Eddie and all the other 4th and 5th graders performing various holiday tunes, under the direction of Mrs. Elizabeth Wessel and Mrs. Amy Hardy, Mrs. Kaylene Blaylock on piano.

There's a little something for everyone in here: we have sacred music for Christmas, swingin' jazzy music for me, Feliz Navidad for Tio Adolfo, and even a traditional Hebrew song for Barry!
