A concert leading up to Christmas doesn’t have to simply include traditional holiday music to make it a great show, and our Middle School band students proved that this week. While holiday staples like “The 12 Days of Christmas”, “Jingle Bells” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” were on the bands’ set lists, so were songs by Cee Lo Green, Pharrell Williams, Three Dog Night, One Direction and Queen.
It was an energetic night as students from our Middle School Jazz Band, Grade 7 Band, Grade 6 Beginner Band, Grade 8 First Year Band and Grade 8 Advanced Band took to the stage at our chapel and played to a packed house. All five bands sounded fantastic, performing a variety of pop music, Christmas songs, musical medleys and symphonic pieces.
Concertgoers were also lucky enough to get an audible sneak peak at one of the pieces of music from this spring’s Middle School production of The Wizard of Oz.
Thanks to band teacher, Mr. Ian Farish, as well as Audrey Bailey and Meghan Bellamy for their great work with the students. Congratulations to all for putting on such a wonderful show!
