High school musicians excited to entertain people in person again this December

PMG FILE PHOTO - Safety protocols for the December Sandy High concerts are still in the works. The Sandy High band and choir programs have received a green light to entertain live audiences this December, just in time to bring holiday cheer to the community.

At 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 14, the symphonic band, combined ensembles, wind ensemble and jazz combo will play a winter concert in the Sandy High auditorium, 37400 Bell Street.

Safety protocols, such as audience capacities and seating arrangements for this event are still being determined, but director Rob McGlothin says students seem excited about being able to perform for a live audience once more.

"It is very important to our process that we celebrate our successes, and audiences are a definite part of that celebration," explains director Rob McGlothin. "Last spring, we played for an empty house and recorded it, and it just felt incomplete."

Sandy High instrumentalists and singers will also be caroling at the community's first Season of Giving event outside the Abundant Life Church, 16633 Champion Way, Sandy, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 4, for the city's Season of Giving event.

"We talk a lot about making beautiful things for people to enjoy and creating exciting experiences for listeners, and when we get to see their joy and excitement, it makes all of the effort worthwhile," McGlothin adds.

The choirs will perform the following day at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec.15, in the Sandy High auditorium.

"It's super exciting; this will be officially our first concert where we can somewhat return to normal," choir director Alec Chase says.

"It's going to be a nice concert with a lot of music," Chase adds. "Music is always best when shared with others, and I think that's best shared person to person and not digitally. I think everybody is going to have a nice time celebrating music together."
