The Spencer County High School Band performed a Christmas concert for family, friends and the community on Sunday, Dec. 2.


The concert began with a few words from Superintendent Chuck Adams and band director Peggy Pickett.
The students displayed the hard work and dedication it took to produce the event.
There were 71 band members playing a selection of Christmas songs. Soloists were Madolyn B. Bennett, James M. Bruce, Brandon T. Conard, Edwin K. Curry, Caleb M. Fulkerson, Shane T. Greenwell, Amelia C. Herndon, Jessica A. Klefot and John W. Mathre. Brandon Conard, Edwin Curry and Jessica Klefot also performed as a trio.
The event also served as a fundraiser for the band, which sold many baked items like cakes, cookies, cupcakes, fudge and pies. All proceeds go to pay for the band’s upcoming bus trip to Chicago.
The senior band members also presented gifts to their mentor and director, Peggy Pickett.
