Thanksgiving is almost here which means our Holiday Concert is right around the corner. We are excited to have this concert in the new AISD Center for the Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA). If you haven’t been to a concert or played there, it is quite the experience. This year will be a particular treat as the Full Symphony Orchestra (band and strings) will be joined by the 80-member AHS Concert Chorale to perform together for the first time in over ten years! This is a wonderful way to ring in the holiday season!
