A district-wide Christmas concert proved to be the perfect setting to showcase the vocal and instrumental talents of area students. The Sunflower County Consolidated School District’s choirs and bands from Robert L. Merritt Jr. High School, Gentry High School and Ruleville Central High School converged on the campus of Mississippi Delta Community College on Thursday for the Unified in Music Christmas Celebration.
The performances provided a festive gateway into the holiday season that brought family, community members and district staff together for a musical feast. The various melodic ensembles graced the stage in the MDCC Fine Arts Auditorium and each in their own style filled the room with a resounding crescendo of chorals, choruses and chords.
The song selections ranged from traditional seasonal favorites to the theme from the Disney computer-animated movie, Frozen. The directors are to be commended for their excellence and commitment.
