Long Beach middle school musicians braved the cold to provide entertainment at the City of Long Beach Boardwalk Lights holiday show on the boardwalk at National Boulevard. Opening the show with a festive assortment of holiday favorites was the middle school saxophone ensemble under the direction of Elizabeth Altbacker. They were followed by members of the middle school chorus, who sang other traditional favorites of the season, under the direction of Michele Bennett.
"I just want to extend our heartfelt thanks to you and your students for taking the time to come out on a cold night and participate in this community event," said Joyce Costigan of Creative Advertising Concepts, who helped organize the festivities. "The feedback and buzz and have been nothing but positive on both the students' performance and the idea of having them come out and play."
