The Grinch was nowhere to be seen at the recent Northwestern winter concert, where the high school musicians had one goal in mind: to evoke the warmth of the holidays for their audience.

“It’s so heartwarming to be able to share the holidays with you and my students,” Lykins said at the start of the concert.
The hourlong concert included selections by both the chorus and band.
