SARAH COBB ELEMENTARY MUSIC FILLS MAGNOLIA MANOR AT CHRISTMAS
Only blocks away, the Sarah Cobb Elementary School band and and newly formed chorus visited Magnolia Manor for a Christmas performance. In the group were 17 members of the first-year band and 35 members of the first-year chorus. Musical Director, Mr. Tim Beck, opened the concert saying, "Christmas is about caring and sharing and giving. Our students at Sarah Cobb want to share their talents with you during this special holiday season."
In costumes obtained from local clothes merchant, Mr. Al Hurley of Al's Men's and Women's Apparel, the outfits for the girls and boys will be used for concert presentations for years to come. The groups provided Christmas sounds to "Jingle Bells," "Santa Baby," "Jingle Bell Rock," "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas," "We Need a Little Christmas Now," "Up on the Housetop," "Jolly Ole St. Nick," and closed with a Christmas wish, and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
During the concert, some residents stood with a rousing applause of approval. Many choir selections were delayed due to increased approval by residents. Before their departure from the stage and the front of Magnolia Manor, Mr. Beck said, "This is our first concert, and we did an excellent job. You should be proud of the job you have done." With positive reviews of this first concert of the school year, additional invitations for the group and soloists will be offered. Sarah Cobb's band and chorus will perform a holiday celebration on Tuesday night, December 13th at 6:00 in the multipurpose building at Sarah Cobb. The public is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served.
Here, 52 members of the fine arts program at Sarah Cobb gather in front of Magnolia Manor before they depart for the brief trip back to Sarah Cobb Elementary.
