Before we kick off this great night of music we wanted to briefly remind you of some things that you, the audience, can do to help make us sound great.

Please silence your cellphone or any other soundmaking device. Let this concert be a chance to take a break from texting, email, Facebook and other things we do on our phones. Please sit back, relax and enjoy our hard work.

Please refrain from talking while our groups are performing. Try to completely immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of our musicians.

If your child seated with you gets restless during the concert, please feel free to take them out in the hallway for a short break.

Once the concert has concluded please head outside quickly so that we can focus on packing up. Any help is always appreciated in this as we had to move a lot from the band hall to make this concert happen.


Santa Stomp - Santa Stomp! is a fun novelty selection written to bring in the holiday spirit with a smile. The Elves decided Santa needed a piece of music written just for 'Ol Santa. It has been said that Santa was spotted dancing around the North Pole during the premiere of Santa Stomp!


Flute/Oboe: Jingle Bells

Clarinet: Up on the Housetop

Saxophone: Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel

Trumpet: Jolly Old St. Nicholas

Horn: Jingle Bells

Trombone: Jolly Old St. Nicholas

Baritone/Tuba: Jingle Bells

Percussion: Jingle Bells

Old St. Nicholas Had a Farm - Imagine, if you can, the north pole where Santa keeps all of his reindeer. It would be a lot like a farm, right? That is the idea of this fun little piece that uses the song Old MacDonald with popular Christmas Carols.

Symphonic Band

The Angels Mix - This high-energy medley combines Angels We Have Heard on High, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, and quotes from Angels from the Realms of Glory. After a majestic opening, the party gets started with an intense rock groove.

Minor Holiday Celebration - Two Christmas favorites have been re-arranged into a harmonic minor providign a new teist on these holiday classics. Robert W. Smith has woven together Joy to the World and Jingle Bells with quotes from other familiar melodies including The Dreidel Song and Hallelujah Chorus. Join us in our minor celebration of the holidays!

A Crazy Mixed-Up Christmas Concert - A holiday concert gone wrong is the theme of this humorous number! It's as if the band members got their parts all confused! Beloved carols, familiar tunes, and zany effects, courtesy of well-placed glissandos, ratchets, bird whistles, and a slew of other things get all mixed up. Finally the band manages to pull it all together for the ending to close out this fun tune.

Honor Band

House of the Rising Bells - This song is the perfect concert opener with the clever pairing of two folk tunes: House of the Rising Sun and Ukrainian Bell Carol. It begins ominously and proceeds to combine both tunes in a special way that brings something unique to any program.

A Carmen Christmas - Christmas goes to the opera in this clever and fun arrangement! George Bizet's classic opera gets a seasonal makeover in this mash-up that combines themes from Carmen with numerous holiday favorites.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Every Who down in Whoville will be whistling this theme song of the dastardly character from the Dr. Seuss TV special!

Santa the Barbarian - The jolly old elf rom the North Pole gets an aggressive markeover in the wonderfully tongue-in-cheek work for young band. Beginning with a movie-trailer narration, Santa is reimagined as a warrior from the winter wastes as Up on the Housetop; Jingle Bells and Jolly Old St. Nicholas are given a barbaric twist.


An essential part of any successful band is a strong private lessons program. During class, we are not able to give your child as much individualized attention as we would like to. Private lessons are a chance for your child to have one on one time with a specialist on their instrument to help them excel faster inside and outside the classroom. Private lessons are typically held at either RMS, or at Kingwood High School, depending on your private teachers schedule. Many of our private lesson teachers are now doing virtual lessons due to COVID-19. Please click on the Private Lesson Info link below to access our directory of lesson teachers, or email one of the band directors for more information.
