And this sounds like lots of fun - getting creative in christmas art themed musical way…Youth Music is again decorating a tree at the Festival of Christmas Trees at St John’s Golden Church on Kamo Road.We need you to make a decoration or two in a musical style to hang on our tree. Look for the Christmas box at the front desk for ideas and to put your creations in…a star with a photo of you playing your instrument…use old music to fold into a shape…use old cards for their pictures or cardboard…some Christmas shapes will be in there for you to take….who can make the best one?
