Video: Hood River holiday concerts

December 21, 2011

A video Christmas card It is the season of song. Everywhere you turn this November and December, musical events filled stages and halls. We couldn't record every event, but we have attempted a playlist of sorts, starting with as the Mid-Columbia Adventist Christian School Christmas pageant, with its pre-school choir in full angel regalia, led by Elaina Mathisen. Next up is the Trail Band, in its annual concert benefitting Hood River Education Foundation, putting a jazzy take on an old Christmas favorite. That's Hood River native Cal Scott on the guitar solo. From there, an aural glimpse of the Hood River Valley High School concert choir, in "Stand By Me," and we end with Aaron Meyer and his band (Tim Ellis on guitar) blending "I Saw Three Ships" and "Sailor's Hornpipe" during their concert to benefit United Way on Dec. 11.
