The Carmel Christkindl Markt is back! Quattro String Academy bass student Megan Munson was selected to be the #1 Christkind this year. Megan is a freshman at Carmel HS, plays in the CHS Philharmonic Orchestra, and is also a competitive volleyball athlete. Megan writes this description of her duties:
"The Christkind is a traditional German giftbringer who brings the presents on December 24th. I entered a Christkind essay contest about Christmas meals, then proceeded to the interview round where I received 1st place and a $1,000 dollar scholarship. I walk around the market, take photos and pass out candy canes."
We are very proud of Megan’s excellence in so many different disciplines.
