Pops Concert was great!

The Pops concert tonight was superb. The crowd gave the various performances five different standing ovations.

The Band started with their competition pieces of Havendance and Rhosymedre, mixed in The Grumpy Old Bear in the middle, and blew the crowd away as they ended with The Star Wars Epic. The Jazz Band was remarkable and had the crowd swaying to In The Mood and The Sidewinder. Nice job to all the instrumental music students and to Matt Lenz and Diane Malcom for guiding them.

The Concert Choir was equally excellent as they performed You Are The New Day, Return to Chicago, and closed with Benediction #9 as a send off to the seniors. Out To Lunch performed Chamego, Africa, Leave It, Off The Wall and the old Vocal Jazz favorite of I'll Be Seeing You. It was a great choir concert and thanks to all the vocal music pupils and to Phil Stiemke for direction.

There were many guest musicians - thank you to all who helped make this a wonderful evening of entertainment for the community to enjoy.
