The Christmas Tour will continue Dec. 8 with a performance at a local church, and a special performance at another campus the next school day.

The Wildcat Jazz students will perform two sets during the SSISD Band Christmas Concert in SSHS Auditorium Dec. 9, one at 6:15 p.m. and the other at 6:45 p.m.

The Dec. 9 Band Christmas Concert kicks off at 6 p.m. with selections from the SSMS Beginning Band and Concert Band, sounds of the SSMS Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble, then conclude with a performance by the full SSHS band at 7 p.m. All are invited to attend the SSISD Band Christmas Concert Dec. 9 at the Auditorium, to hear sounds of the season and show support for these fine arts students.

The 2021 Wildcat Jazz Christmas Tour is currently scheduled to conclude on Dec. 13, with a 1 p.m. concert at Sulphur Springs Middle School. This concert was originally slated to kickoff the Christmas tour on Dec. 3. That concert, SSISD Director of Bands Spencer Emmert reported Tuesday afternoon, will now be held 10 days later in the SSMS band hall.
