Lafayette High's Music Department's ‘The Sights and Sounds of Christmas’

Mayo —

Under the direction of Dale Croft and student director Gabe Lake, the Lafayette High School Music Department presented “The Sights and Sounds of Christmas” on Thursday, Dec. 12 in the school cafeteria. 

The annual program showcases the talents of the band, choir and auxiliary performing Christmas music and routines. This year, the program was slightly delayed while Croft dealt with his ever-popular drum line that can and will find anything and everything to drum on. 

The well played opening skit set the tone for a great evening of entertainment that began as always with the band performing “The Star Spangled Banner”. In addition to performances by the Marching Band, LHS Singers, Majorettes and Dance Team, those in attendance were treated to solo vocal performances by Kaydee Callis singing “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and Kaley Koon singing “My Grown Up Christmas List”.  

The talent of the music department is not limited to that on-stage performances as again this year many of the students arranged and choreographed portions of the program.  Captains Emily Fredriksson and Ana Palomino choreographed the routines performed by the Majorettes and Dance Teams, respectively, while Kiana Williams, Jason DeGroff and Gabe Lake each added their own personal touches to the evening with musical arrangements. 

The evening closed with the finale that included all the music department students on stage together.
