As we near the end of February, the band and choir program are beginning to work on their music for the spring concert. The spring concert to come is the Evening of the Arts on March 29th. The middle school bands are beginning to put together several pieces that are both challenging for them and fun to listen to as an audience member!
The High school has been working hard all semester to prepare their music for large group contests on March 21st. They will perform their contest music for the Evening of the Arts to show the audience all their hard work they have put in. Also, our pep band season is coming to a close as does the basketball season. The high school choir has been preparing a musical themed program for the portion of the Evening of the Arts as well. We also have several students taking solos and small ensembles to contests this year, which takes place on April 5th.
The fifth grade class is starting to develop talented musicians as well. That class is beginning to learn how to read more difficult rhythmic notation and improving their tone as individuals. I look forward to seeing what all this class can bring in the future.
