It’s almost December and the cold breeze is returning back to Ohio, ready to tell everyone that winter is here. To start off the season, Nordonia is going to be having it’s annual Winter Arts Festival. December 9th, stop on by at the high school for a good time of winter fun. Over 1,500 students are participating in this event. From 8:30 AM to 11 AM there will be a breakfast with Santa, serving pancakes for $5.00 if you are a student or senior citizen and $7.00 for adults. Following after will be lunch, which will include pizza, popcorn, hot dogs, and drinks. Also from 8:30 AM until 12:30 PM, there will be free fun activities going on such as cookie decorating, face painting, and various Christmas themed arts and crafts.
As for the actual art, as usual there will be student made pieces and creations on display and musical performances by the choirs and bands. Beginning at 8:30, the middle school choirs will perform their songs and should end at 9:15. Afterwards, the elementary schools will follow them starting with Ledgeview, then Rushwood, and finally Northfield. Then at 12:00, the 6th grade choir and high school choirs will continue with the holiday cheer and sing more songs until about 1:00. Between 1:00 to 2:00, the auditorium will be closed in preparation for the concert bands. During this time, the 7th-12th grade jazz bands will provide entertainment in the cafeteria. Finally, at 2:00 the 6th grade band will go on, followed by the middle school bands at 2:30, and then the high school concert band and wind ensemble at 3:00. The program is listed below this passage.
So please, feel free to stop by and enjoy the shows and artwork. The cost is free and there is no obligation to stay the whole time! As a former choir member, I can guarantee this event will not be a bore and I’m sure our artists and performers promise this too! Again, it’s Saturday, December 9th, don’t miss it!
