First Year Band, Grade 5/6 Select Chorus give concert

The Aitchison Auditorium at Driver Middle School came alive with music as the First Year Band, under the direction of Maureen Alvaro, and the Fifth/Sixth Grade Select Chorus, under the direction of Jennifer Patterson, performed in concert on March 5. The First Year Band performed "Mickey Mouse March," "Bandroom Boogie" and "Starlight." The presentation was noteworthy in that each section of the band was spotlighted during the performance. Selections performed by the Fifth and Sixth Grade Select Chorus included "Cupple Creek," "Good Night," by Doreen Rao, "Good Night," by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and a signature vocal version of Duke Ellington's "Duke's Place."
