The Shackelford Junior High School Woodwind Choir helped ring in the holiday spirit at last week's Arlington ISD Board of Trustees meeting.

These eighth grade students are in their second year of participation in the Arlington ISD instrumental band program. The choir is made up of both flutes and clarinets from Shackelford’s top ensemble.

Within this ensemble are seven students who have earned a place in the Arlington ISD All-City Band that will perform in January. Two of these students also earned a place in the All-Region Band that performed at the Arlington ISD Dr. Marcelo Cavazos Center for Visual and Performing Arts a few weeks ago.

Under the direction of Ann Klass and Matthew Nagel, the Woodwind Choir performed “Angels We Have Heard on a High" by Kevin McLeod and “Deck the Halls” by Thomas Oliphant.
