December 17, 2019 at Crill Hall; Point Loma Nazarene University; 7pm

Welcome to the annual winter program for the Point Loma High School Music Department. We are pleased to present a program of music for the season featuring our premier performing ensembles.

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we are choosing to go paperless with our programs. For students and families who would like to print a copy, a link to this program will be published to our weekly eblast and our webpage. Thank you for your understanding as we try this for the first time.

Please silence your electronic devices for duration of the concert. You are welcome to film or take pictures, but please refrain from using flash during the performances.

We hope you enjoy the concert, and have a safe and happy holiday season.

I try to shy away from plastic ornaments and disposable knickknacks, but instead fill it with things collected during my travels or found in nature during one of my many walks. The combinations of those decorations with as many candles as I can light without setting the house on fire, make me a happy girl!" • Hide Obara - "Lamppost In Nightsky" • Carolyn V - "Tea Time" • Sharon McCutcheon - "Pretty fairy lights bokeh wallpaper."
