These cute little guys and gals made their concert debut at the kindergarten Christmas program last week. Under the capable direction of the kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Victor Garvis, the future Philharmonic stars, equipped with drum sticks, bells and tamborines, presented their cacophonous, but rhythmic, version of "Jingle Bells" and other festive yuletide tunes. Lacking a brass section, the melody was supplied by kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Edgar Heer. The program which also featured dances and tableaux, was thoroughly enjoyed by the tots' proud mamas.
