: Good Morning.
I feel your pain. We have three different religions, not mentioned in your post, that have the same problem. When we program the "Winter Concert" here, we use pieces that are not Christmas related but could slide into it. Like Abominable Snowman Chase for instance. There will be at least 1 Christmas tune which those children will just sit in the band and not play. One of our religious kids cannot participate in anything after dark. Can't use them in football season or on Saturdays. But have to let them participate in band. It is tiring along with everything else. Good luck.
