The St. Mary's Elementary School in Owatonna had their Christmas concert on Thursday, December 10, in the Jerry Kent Gymnasium.

The concert will be heard on KRFO AM1390 Wednesday, December 16 at 10AM and it will be broadcast also on Monday, December 21, at 2PM.

The fifth-grade band is directed by Becky Berkley. The pieces they played were "Ding Dong Merrily on High" and "Christmas Mash-Up." The first piece they did a do-over in the beginning, which received a little chuckle from the audience. The band did well.

The elementary choirs were directed by Larry Ostermeier, who also made an appearance in the band, and Dione Peterson was on piano.

The kindergarten and first-grade choir sang three songs.

  • "Baby's Born in Bethlehem"
  • "Mary Rocking, Gently Rocking"
  • "Must Be Santa"

The second- and third-grade choir also sang three songs.

  • "Angel Carol"
  • "Come, Follow the Star"
  • "Santa's Choir"

The fourth- and fifth-graders sang three song as well.

  • "Circle Round the Moon"
  • "Sing a Song of Joy"
  • "Upon the Midnight Clear"

The last song of the evening was song by all the choirs and it was "Christmas in About Three Minutes."

Once again the concert will be broadcast on KRFO AM1390 Wednesday, December 16, at 10AM and it will be broadcast also on Monday, December 21, at 2PM.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
