Christmas Concert, Basketball, and This Week

Last Thursday, the bands of EISD presented their annual Christmas Concert. The concert was held at the High School auditorium. It was standing room only for all three bands! If you did not get a chance to attend, or if you want to watch a performance again, videos of all three bands are below:
