On December 10th, the Macks Creek music department put on their annual Christmas Concert.

Rock U made their Christmas Concert debut with “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Santa Looked a lot Like Daddy”. Choir on Fire, made up of students from fifth to eighth grade, performed three wonderful pieces; “Let It Snow”, “Cold Snap”, and “Stille Nacht” which was performed with the high school choir as well. To wrap up the singing portion of our concert the high school choir sang “Up on the Housetop” by Pentatonix, “Glow”, and “Christmas … In About 3 Minutes”.
To finish the concert was the ever awaited Christmas play put on by sixth, seventh, and eighth grade. This year was “Lights! Camera! Christmas!” A delightful play about six movie producers trying to make the perfect Christmas movie about Santa Claus. It covered all kinds of movie genres like film noir, modern, silent film, heroes and adventure, and of course spaghetti western. By the end the directors come together to make one big movie with all the different genres and the real Santa Claus makes his big entrance!
