It was a two-for-one, according to band and ensemble director Mr. Allan Dietz. Within the Walt Whitman Wind Ensemble, you will find the members of the Jazz Band, so Monday morning’s performance to open the PTA Council’s annual holiday meeting and luncheon featured music from both groups of talented musicians. PTA Council members, school delegates, school administrators, and Board of Education members, as well as community members, were treated to an assortment of musical classics that were a taste of what will be on full display at Whitman’s Winter Concert Series.

Beginning on Monday, December 15 and continuing on Thursday, December 18, instrumental and choral groups will put on a display of musical talent that is guaranteed to put a smile on even old Scrooge's face. All concerts begin at 7:30 PM in Whitman’s Performing Arts Center.

Monday Dec. 15: Concert Band, Concert Choir, Concert Orchestra, and the Wind Ensemble

Thursday Dec 18: Women’s/Men’s Choruses, Whitman Choral, Symphonic Orchestra, and the Voices of Whitman.
