The Yough Concert Band had a unique performance. They held an “Autism Friendly” Concert for the Autistic, Learning Support & Learning Disabled students of their district and the NHS school at St. Edwards in Herminie. Their concert was Thurs. Dec. 19 at noon. They performed portions of our Christmas concert, and then invited students on the stage to watch the band while they played. Students had a chance to play on various percussion instruments. After a small party, students got a small gift before returning to their schools.
