Superior Pirates

Congratulations to the FBHS Symphonic Band for earning straight superiors for the second time this year at the State of Florida, District 17 Music Performance Assessment. Under the direction of Tyler Odom, the selections played include: "Liberty Bell March" by John Philip Sousa, "Rhosymedre" by Ralph Vaughn Williams, and "Overture for Winds" by Charlie Carter. They also received a superior in sight reading, where they have 8 minutes to prepare two brand new pieces of music that the students and teacher have never seen before. In addition, congratulations to FBHS Senior and student conductor, John Brown, who also earned a superior rating for his piece, "Heritage Overture." The Symphonic Band will perform at the State Music Performance Assessment the first week of May.

Hornet Singers Make Quite the Buzz

Yulee Primary School's Hornet Singers recently performed at their final performance of the school year. With a Disney theme, students sang songs from the Mickey Mouse Club, The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, and The Lion King. Under the direction of Mrs. Elyse Perrick, students each learned and memorized all of their repertoire, speaking parts, and choreography. These second-grade students did a wonderful job demonstrating their hard work and working together as a team to create an entertaining and celebratory evening.
