Spring Concert(s) Wrap Up

Jazz Ensemble/String Ensemble -

From every direction, this was a fantastic performance for us from beginning to end. Musically we hit a home run on most of the pieces, turning in our best performances of the year. Congratulations on a fantastic job! Thank you to everyone that was able to come support the boys!

Symphonic Band -

Similar to the Jazz/Strings concert, everything about this night was great. We did our necessary jobs (thank you for the patience, parents!!!), had a great performance of our music, and we were able to celebrate the accomplishments of everyone in the group. I was extremely pleased with how everything ran.

I do wish to send a truly immense thank you to everyone in the Band. The gifts on behalf of the Senior Class and Band Boosters are far too kind. It's hard to put in words just how much they mean to me, but I promise you that each is incredibly special. The socks in particular... wow!
