The Maryvale Guitar Ensembles visited the District office to entertain the staff with holiday music. They joined the choir. The groups make several holiday events this time of year to raise money for travel next semester. The guitarists will hit the road again in the spring, traveling to New Mexico, Chicago, and a Southern U.S. Tour with stops in San Antonio, New Orleans, Memphis, and Abilene. Music Director Jim Yancey has two advanced touring ensembles: Illuminati with 16 students and Carpe Diem with 15. Most of the guitarists are juniors and seniors. There are now 250 students taking guitar at Maryvale.
