KODIAK — Principal Bill Watkins introduced the show, but the musicians stole it.

Hundreds of Kodiakans filled the seats at Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium Thursday night as Kodiak High School musicians finished the fall semester with the annual winter concert.

The school's concert band, directed by Dale Lhotka, led off the show with three carols, the last including a thunderous beat that allowed the band's percussionists to show off their skills.

The school orchestra, led by Michael Remy, then took the stage for a pair of songs, then handing it over to the high school jazz band, which began its act with a rendition of "Jingle Bells."

After the jazz band, Kodiak's choirs to the stage.

The high school's male choir, "Men Who Sing," entertained the audience with a pair of songs before handing the stage to the concert choir, which had three songs under the direction of Laura Blackwood.

As a grand finale, the combined bands, orchestra and choirs filled the stage for a medley called "Holiday Sing-Along."
