This is an empty auditorium awaiting excited students and proud parents/ other relatives to fill it’s many seats.
The first to play are a talented group of eighth graders that make up our school’s Jazz Band. They played “Route 66” arranged by Paul Murtha, “Maybe Someday” by Erik Sherburne, and “Mamacita!” by Chris Sharp.
After the Jazz Band performed, the seventh grade band hurried onto the stage. Here, Mrs. Duce is talking to and encouraging the band. In the short time they were on stage, the seventh grade band played.
“Imperium” by Michael Sweeney and “Dark Ride” by Randall Standridge.
These two pictures are of the seventh graders (green shirts) and eighth graders (grey uniforms) sitting down in their seats onstage with their music and instruments in hand.
Next up was a specialized eighth grade percussion band who plays with trash cans as their drums. This eight-man team played the song “Fresh Trash” by Ed Argenziano.
The eighth grade band played last yet still were phenomenal. They played “Shimmering Joy” by Tyler S. Grant and “Whispers of the Wind” by David Shaffer.
Great job to all who participated in the band concert.
