Winter Concert Recap

Thank you so much to all of the parents and families that came out last night to support the HHS Music Program! It was a great show that featured so much talent, and I am really pleased about how it went...I hope you are too! There were a few hiccups that will be addressed for the Spring Concert (more seating, more programs, smoother transitions), but that was to be expected with our initial venture into such a diverse concert program.  If you would like a copy of the Program to print out as a keepsake, please click here.  I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday filled with time spent with family, friends, and loved ones.  See you next year!
