WCS Virtual Concerts
Spring Band, Choir, and Piano Concert
--Star Spangled Banner
--Don't Stop Believin' - This marching band arrangement features all band students grades 7-12. The students practiced in 3 seperate groups and then came together after school one day to record. Don't Stop Believin' encompassed part of our hopeful attitude for this year.
--Blues 167 - By Russell Scarbrough. Dr. Scarbrough is a local musician out of Rochester, NY who arranged his jazz piece to fit this year's 5th period instrumentation. Blues 167 will feature Holden Matteson doing a blues improvisation on the Euphonium.
--Build Me Up, Buttercup - This marching band arrangement features the 5th period band students. The students elected to work on this piece as they remembered that even with COVID-19 restrictions, they can still have fun making music.
- Hunter Bells combined the three tunes listed above into a medley to showcase what he worked on in the Spring Semester. The arragnements of Jingle Bells and When the Saints Go Marching in are from the Alfred Adult Piano Book and the arrangement of Ode to Joy is by Roger Hayden. Hunter created his own transitions between the songs.
- Using the 2020-2021 school year as a time to try and learn from our experiences, the 9-12 choir decided to try to put together a virtual choir. Oh Yini (Where Are You?) is a traditional South Afriacan call and response song performed by Gabriella Hall, Keylee Hunt, Holden Matteson, and Emma Nelson.
- Let My People Go is arranged by Roger Emerson and is based on a traditional spiritual. This performance will feature Gabriella Hall, Kaylee Hunt, and Holden Matteson. The alto line is voiced by Miss Perez.
