The newly formed concert band made its debut at the annual Christmas concert at St. Peter/St. Francis School in Torrington on Dec. 4.
Under the direction of Molly Welch of the Connecticut Future Musicians staff, about 20 students participated.
The school’s new music director, Francine Gryniuk, led students in a play based on the story of Christmas. Each grade participated by singing various holiday songs.
Monetary donations collected at the door came to over $350, half of which was to be given to Friendly Hands Food Bank and the remaining half was to support the music program. (Photo submitted)
