Winter '20 - '21
This year, we had to rethink the way we create music together. Between some of our students being in hybrid, some being at home, and a transfer to all distance learning in November, students and teachers have been finding new ways to perform.
Check out some of our concerts and performances below!

A Holiday Concert
High School Choirs
Typically for the winter season, the WBLAHS Choirs get together and perform a "December Dinner" concert where family and guests can enjoy a holiday catered meal, festive decor, and a live winter music performance in the North Campus cafeteria. Another tradition is for the WBLAHS Mariners to go caroling at local senior centers and at the WBL District Center. This year, they were excited to share their holiday cheer with a wider audience via Youtube.
