This being a dessert concert, it seems appropriate to show the desserts in St. Andrew's hall before they are attacked by the hungry hordes.

As folks filled their faces, the band played many familiar Christmas tunes, some with "swinging" arrangements.
The band was located on the stage, making it difficult to find a place from which to snap them.
This one was taken from a somewhat precarious perch on the edge of the stage stairway.
No others were attempted.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, much to our delight.
