Christmas is the time of giving. In light of the holiday season, the Baker High School Band gave the gift of music. As a thank you for the support the community has always given the band, from compliments to monetary contributions for the upcoming Chicago trip, small ensembles traveled around Baker with instruments in hand.
The first group was Caleb Ploeger, Alissa Bohle, Katie Wang, Maleah Graham, Megan Smith and Courtney Tudor. Their first performance was at Reynold’s on Dec. 11. They played many traditional Christmas songs including “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and “Joy to the World”. Many customers throughout the store paused to enjoy the small group serenading them with their sweet melodies. The group played through their collection of songs for about 30 minutes and then hurried back to the high school. Other students could be seen playing around Baker at locations such as Superior Care Villa. Keep an eye out in the next few days this week for a festive group spreading Christmas cheer.
