On the heels of Halloween, the Biltmore Estate wasted no time in ushering in the holiday season. On November 1, the iconic 35-foot-tall banquet hall Christmas tree was ceremoniously delivered to the Biltmore Estate as hundreds of guests watched and cheered. Horses pulled the tree on a sleigh-like trailer featuring none other than a waving Santa Claus! Leading the way was the T.C. Roberson High School marching band, performing traditional songs and bringing holiday cheer to all.

"In the T.C. Roberson Marching Band, we embrace the importance of being part of something greater than ourselves each and every day," said Director of Bands Mr. James Kirkpatrick. "At our core is a belief that hard work and the sharing of our musical gifts will have tremendous power in bringing this community together. We experienced that today with this time honored tradition at the Biltmore."

Kirkpatrick is now in his twenty first year of teaching and fourth year at Roberson. Buncombe County Schools is honored to have the quality of our students and fine arts programs recognized by such institutions as Biltmore.

"We are beyond grateful and humbled for the opportunity," Kirkpatrick continued.

Buncombe County Schools is in the process of reviewing its website to ensure compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
