For the NDL

Once again, the Russellville Independent School District did not disappoint as they held their annual Christmas Band Concert on Tuesday, Dec. 13, at the deGraffenried Auditorium.

The holiday celebration began this year with music from the Beginning Band students from Stevenson Elementary under the direction of Assistant Director, Mr. Trevor Cardwell. Next to perform were the 6th Grade Band and the 7th/8th Grade Band. The RHS Percussion Ensemble entertained with a rendition of "Feliz Navidad." Lastly, we heard lovely selections from our RHS Concert Band members under the direction of Band Director, Brian Brown.

They concluded the evening with several holiday favorites, including "White Christmas", "O Holy Night", and "Sleigh ride".
