On Sunday, Dec. 23 several members of the TCMS and TCHS bands provided music for the morning worship at Middlebourne United Methodist Church. These musicians accompanied organist and Knights Band director Matt Jennings for the following congregational hymns: “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” “Once in Royal David’s City,” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” They also provided music for the offertory, playing arrangements of “Silent Night,” and “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen.” The service concluded with a postlude of sorts as the Knights Brass members performed “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “The First Noel,” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
