The PC music department celebrated the Christmas season with their annual band and choir concert on December 12. This year’s music was centered around the theme “Emmanuel is Born” and included traditional Christmas carols as well as modern arrangements of favorites. The highlight of the night was the world premiere performance of “Song Of Zechariah” by Matthew Armstrong, commissioned by band director Shannon Dykstra and choir director Tim Van Voorst. The song was performed by Cantabile, Concert Choir, and Concert Band. Instrumental solos were featured throughout, including alto flute played by sophomore Abigail Gosselink.
