Watch: high school band spotted spreading holiday cheer

“We wish you a merry Christmas,” as performed by some OBHS band members

A small contingent of Oak Bay High Schools’ senior band helped give more holiday to shoppers, Wednesday.

Over their lunch break a small group of band students lugged instruments down to Oak Bay Avenue and Hampshire Road. They proceeded to serenade village-goers with holiday classics.

“The senior band in Oak Bay has this program where we make little ensembles with our friends and we go out and busk one or two times per week,” said band member Ryan Kettlewell. “We had some technical errors, but I think generally people enjoyed having some music.”

Kettlewell says they might have one more busking session before the holiday break, but that the miniature concerts will continue into 2019.
