6th Grade Band Virtual Band Concert a Success!
"While it wasn't like our normal concerts, it WAS really special" said Mrs. Haraldson after the concert. "I'm so proud of these students and can't wait to put them all together in the future. This is a SPECIAL bunch of kids!"
Below is the video from the concert. Feel free to share it with friend and family that could not attend, One benefit of doing the concert like this is that you can have repeat performances!!
