Concert celebrates Fine Arts

The drama teams hold daily rehearsals as band and choir work tirelessly to perfect their music. Outside, the winter guard team fine-tunes their award-winning routines.

The various divisions of the campus fine arts department are in a flurry of activity as they prepare for the Fine Arts concert on March 11 at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium.

Participants look forward to displaying their talents to the audience.

“I like the Fine Arts concert because we get a chance to show off what we can do,” Elise Aydelotte, ’05, band member, said. “Not only that, but we get to see what other campus groups are doing as well.”

For others, however, the concert proves something of a conundrum.

“The concert is going to be really tough for me,” Ben Daniels, ’04, said. “For band I have to wear a vest with my tux, and for choir I have a cummerbund. All night I have to keep switching my outfit between performances; that’s going to be really annoying.”

Instead of a performance featuring a single group, the Fine Arts concert showcases the talents of all campus arts groups, including band, jazz band, choir, ensemble, drama and winter guard.

“The Fine Arts concert brings all the different art departments together,” Marc Ferguson, choir director, said. “It allows all the campus arts groups to perform together so people can get an idea of what we are doing. It supports all the groups, not just one.”

For many, the concert is preparation for upcoming competition.

“I really like the Fine Arts concert because it allows the band to prepare for our upcoming festivals,” Paul McEntee, band director, said. “After the concert we can fine-tune our music, based on our performance.”

The band will be attending a band festival in Watsonville on March 13.

The concert will be held March 11 at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, beginning at 7 P.M. For more information, contact the high school office at 297-9464, ext 5.
