Monday, February 28th, 2011 at 11:19 am

“Music in Our Schools Month” has arrived and a busy slate of events is
already underway, including the Senior High Winter Concert on March 7 at
7:30pm. The free performance will feature a variety of classic and
contemporary works for band and choir and is not to be missed.

The concert will open with performances by the Treble Choir and Mixed
Choir, including a Japanese folk song called “Ho, Firefly” and the
beautiful “Come to Me, O My Love” by Allan Petker.

Concert Choir will continue with the Scottish folk song “Loch Lomond,”
featuring soloists Sean Kehren and Steph Kozisek. The choir will also
sing the classic German “Zigeunerleben” by Robert Schumann.

Jazz One will play a clever swing arrangement of “Take Me Out to the Ball
Game” with a trumpet solo by Karina Nordrum; several other students will
perform improv solos on the jazz-rock chart “Panic Button.”

The Concert Band will conclude the evening with a seldom-performed gem by
John Philip Sousa – an arrangement of the classic Revolutionary War song,
“Yankee Doodle.” The concert finale will be a powerful Middle Eastern
composition entitled “Arabesque” by Sam Hazo. It features three senior
flautists: Ariel Steele, Taylor Hanson, and Kelly Weber.

The concert is free and open to the public and begins at 7:30pm on Monday,
March 7. Te performance takes place in the Pine City Elementary
Auditorium.
