(Seguin) -- Things will be sounding more like Christmas this week thanks to local school bands in both the Seguin and Navarro ISD. Seguin Band Director Stan Mauldin says his students will continue their holiday concert schedule on Thursday.
"On Thursday, we have our holiday concert. It starts at 7 o'clock in the performing arts center at the high school," said Mauldin.
Navarro Band Director Patrick Todd says things will also be busy for his students as they too prepare for their holiday concerts.
"On Thursday, we are having an event kind of like this. It's going to be all the fine arts from Navarro -- the art department, the dance, the band -- we are doing a holiday toy drive as well as a food drive. We're going to be donating that stuff to local charities. After the bands play, we're going to do a community sing-a-long for Christmas carols. We're going to be playing a lot of Christmas carols and we will invite everyone down onto the field. That's from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday if people want to come out to see that," said Todd.
Junior band students for both districts hosted their own holiday concerts earlier this week.
All concerts this Thursday are free and open to the public.
Both bands kicked off their week of performances at Monday's annual KWED Holiday Food and Toy Drive. Students, this year, also performed a few songs together. Seguin Radio KWED thanks the students for donating their time each year.
