The sounds of music will fill St. Anthony's School in Drumheller this week as the Catholic school's elementary wing holds its annual Christmas concert, or concerts.
"We actually have three Christmas concerts because this way we allow all the parents and grandparents and everybody that wants to come," explained St. Anthony's principal JoAnne Akerboom. "In our elementary wing we split them up and different students come on different nights so their families can come and enjoy it without beng too squished."
"We're doing the concert Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (Dec. 13-15) and the concert starts at 7:00 (p.m.)," she outlined. "We actually are doing a Christmas play all three nights so there are some kids that will be here all three nights and the rest of them, the choir, will switch up so that different groups of kids will be supporting that every night."
The St. Anthony's Christmas concerts will all be held in Padua Hall, the open space that separates the elementary from the junior and senior high wings.
"These usually last about 45 minutes, which is just perfect," stated Akerboom. "We're very excited too because this year we've got a grand piano in our school so it's going to be a nice accompaniment to the performances as well."
There is no charge for any of the concerts. Attendees are advised to bring a cushion to sit on to make things more comfortable.
