Haile Holiday Performance Takes Flight


Haile Middle School’s Chamber Orchestra played their annual concert at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport on Wednesday. The sweet sounds of violins, violas and cellos playing holiday tunes could be heard throughout SRQ’s corridor.



Travelers flying out of Sarasota took out their cell phones to capture a quick video before going through airport security.



Haile Middle School’s Orchestra Director, Valerie Terry, keeps an eye on the flight arrival times too. She makes sure that the students are playing – as arriving travelers make their way to baggage claim.



The student musicians perform arrangements such as ‘Holiday on the Housetop’ and ‘A Christmas Symphony’ for approximately three hours.



The audience loves to see the students’ instrument bows dressed in beautiful holiday colors.



Enjoy a short clip of their performance… and Happy Holidays, whether you’re traveling near or far.
