Spring Concert Ends the Year on the Right Note
This past Thursday, GD Music Honors Society hosted our last concert of the year, the highly anticipated annual Spring Concert. This concert showcased what the students have been working on all year, and with performances from the Concert Band, Chorus, Drum Corps, Jazz Band and Chamber Choir, the night was full of unmissable talent.
This was the last Spring Concert for the Class of 2019, and senior Ali Cartier felt a mix of emotions about the event, saying, “It’s the end of an era, but I’ll never forget my time in Chamber. I’ve met some of my best friends there, gone to so many cool places, and grown so much as a singer and a person.” Chamber has been an essential part of Ali’s life since sophomore year, and she has been section leader of the soprano section junior and senior year.
GD’s Music program just returned from Disney World, where we participated in workshops, performed at Disney Springs, and enjoyed the parks (in our spare time). Looking forward, Chamber Choir will be going to Spain next April to sing in some of the world’s oldest cathedrals and potentially for the royal family of Spain. We will be doing a lot of fundraising for this trip, including the Open Mics, Winter and Spring Concerts, the annual Funraiser, and likely more, and we would appreciate your support.
GD’s Music Program is as lively and energized as ever, as reflected by this year’s Spring Concert. With so many incredible performances, you really don’t want to miss these concerts. Thank you to all attendees for your support, and we hope to see you at the next Open Mic Night in June!
Open Mic; June 7th
GDMHS will be hosting its last Open Mic Night of the year this Friday, June 7th at 6pm in the Black Box. With their diverse acts spanning many disciplines, no two Open Mics are the same. If you haven’t had the opportunity yet this year to attend or perform at these, it’s a lot of fun and we hope to see you there! Tickets will be sold at the door and there will be concessions available at intermission.
