The Dixie High auditorium was filled with people awaiting for the concert to start. Jon and Dave from 94.1 were the hosts and the entertainers of the night.
Christmas in Dixie is a Dixie High tradition that the school does every Christmas season to raise money for Angel Tree. This year there were seventeen performances of dancing and singing. The Dixie High Madrigals did their well known songs: 12 Days of Christmas and Santa Baby.
There were many students and alumni that performed throughout the night. Graduate, Sammy Myers and her brother, Nate Myers, a senior, both performed their own songs. The Dixie High jazz band performed a few Christmas songs of their own.
“The Klumpp Sisters” performed a song called “Santa's Gotta a Brand New Bag”. Mrs. Cynthia said “I love to perform with my daughters, they are the best.”
All three of them had matching leather and Santa looking dresses. Mrs. Cynthia said her favorite part about performing with her daughters is “it gives us a lot of time to spend together even though we spend so much time together already.”
Afterwards, there was a silent auction going on, held by the Interact club in the commons. The club was raising money for Angel Tree. Things that were auctioned off were movies, toys, books, electronics, furniture, and so much more.
Christmas in Dixie was a big success with every performance during the night. It brought everyone together from the high school jazz band to the elementary school choir. The tenacious spirit of Christmas is in the air.
