CRESTVIEW —  It was no surprise to Crestview High School band director Jody Dunn that a crowd had lined up just outside the Pearl Tyner auditorium, prior to the Christmas concert Tuesday night.

"There are a little less than 500 seats available in the auditorium. We usually have an excess of that," he said.

Friends and family members of students who performed in the concert filled the auditorium to listen a variety of Christmas music selections.

Attendees fortunate enough to get inside the auditorium were able to listen to six different ensembles, including four concert bands and two jazz bands, Dunn said.

Each ensemble performed renditions of holiday classics. The school's concert and symphonic band performed selections from "The Nutcracker" and "O Magnum Mysterium," among others.  

The school's jazz ensembles performed other holiday favorites, like "Winter Wonderland" and "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer."
