CHS band Christmas concert continues to draw crowds (VIDEO)

Using the jazz ensembles for background music, Azyia Taylor, Nick Watson, and Elizabeth Dunn earned applause following their solo performances of "Christmas Time Is Here," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Jingle Bells."

Performing before a large crowd was nothing new to senior Foster Lux, 16, who played a clarinet in the wind ensemble at the end of the concert.

"I like the crowd ... when you get to hear their feedback and how much they enjoyed it," she said. "I just like performing before other people, because they can enjoy it as much as we do."

In addition to being in the 2014 Okaloosa All County Band with 31 other band members, Foster, who is the band's drum major, also made the 2014 Florida All-State Symphonic Band.

Foster said her final year performing in the CHS Christmas concert is "bittersweet."

"It's sad to go, but it is about time (to)," she said.

Kathi Peyton attended to see her 17-year-old daughter, Shayna Clay, play the school's concert band.
