UHS Holiday Band and Orchestra Concert

UHS Holiday Band and Orchestra Concert (updated date)

Thursday, December 9

UHS Auditorium


Mr. Palmer has changed the Holiday Band and Orchestra concert date to 12/9 to avoid sports conflicts; however, 12/9 is also the weather makeup date for the Morgantown Christmas Parade.

The Holiday Band and Orchestra concert is scheduled for Thursday, December 9 - but if the Morgantown Christmas Parade happens to get pushed back, the concert will be on the original date of Tuesday, December 7.  I apologize for any confusion.


Here is the detailed information sheet that was sent out on November 20.
