Seventh grade students from Big Lake Middle School held their winter concert last week. The singers were directed by Sheri Lieffring and accompanied on piano by Mary Ebanks.
The concert began with the Spanish carol, Fum! Fum! Fum! with additional words and music by Mary Donnelly. The song was arranged by George Strid.
The Bard William Shakespeare wrote the words to How Like a Winter. Ruth Morris Gray wrote the music for the song.
The select choir, Remington Andrews, Brianna Christensen, Aubrey Hartfiel, Zara Jackson, Jacob Kempf, Joey Lindberg, Megan Martin, Alex McPherson, Kalani Meligro, Emma Pace, Hailey Risdall, Paige Setrum, Kaitlyn Swanson and Emma Thompson,  sang four songs. They were Deck the Halls, Jingle Bells, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town and We Wish You A Merry Christmas.
The seventh graders continued with Ding Dong! Merrily On High, arranged by Gray.
Their final song was Season’s Greetings, arranged by Joyce Eilers. It featured Madilyn Hanson, Nicholas Doucette, Trey Teige, Kevin Huberty, Kierra Evancho, Brooke Morrison, Addison Bellor, Carson Berg, Reid Olson and Rachel Moore playing jingle bells and Cheyenne Carlsen on wood blocks.
Lieffring thanked the audience for coming. 
“The students have been working very hard this year, learning they can perform alone or in a group with musical expression,” she said. “Merry Christmas.”
