Band adds concert to itinerary

The band program plans to provide free entertainment when they perform their Family and Friends Concert on April 12.

Jazz, Concert band and junior high band will unite to showcase campus arts.

?I?m looking forward to showing our audience what we?ve learned over the year,? Anthony Wilson, ?08, said. “We?ve been working hard on a lot of different songs in the second semester and I?m curious to see how they respond.?

A variety of songs ranging from ?Street Beat? to ?Spitfire? fill the evening?s program in Riverpark Bible Church’s old sanctuary. The performance will start at 7 P.M. and is expected to end at approximately 8:15 P.M.

?It is interesting to see what other bands have been working on,? Samantha Grizz, ?07, said. ?Each group puts in practice and as a member of the band, I appreciate their work.?

The band’s past month and a half has been planning for the concert, including the introduction and rehearsal of new music.

“I wanted to play two different styles of music,” Chris Rice, band director, said. “Tonight’s music is a lot more fun and laid back than the spring concert, which is going to be concerto music.”

Rice plans to take the band on a trip to Santa Cruz the following day, on April 13. The charter bus will leave the campus’ parking lot at 12:30 P.M. Rice’s plans to reward all high school bands with the trip to Great America theme park and boardwalk. They will return at midnight on April 15.

After they return they will prepare for the final, spring, concert of the year. They will perform with all campus choirs on May 15.
