134 pp, 11 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "The old-time Christmas concert is remembered almost unanimously by participants and onlookers alike as 'the biggest day of the year'. Every phase of the concert is featured in this wonderful book: from the first rehearsals to the unpredictably disastrous moments on concert night; from the welcome speech by a nervous preschooler to the climax of the program, the nativity pageant. The monologues and drills, costume songs and plays, gymnastics displays and minstrel acts are recalled vividly by participants in their own words and complemented by private photographs and treasured concert momentos. (This book) brings back the drama and excitement of the old-time school Christmas concert to all who miss it, to all who want to reminisce about it, and to all who wish to experience it for the first time." Faint erased pencil mark on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, minor browning at top edge of flap-folds, two tiny dents on front hinge, very light rubbing.
