Spring Concerts at HMS

This year's spring concert season featured beautiful and inspirational music along with moving tributes to Bruce Brann:


Last night's concert was a rare treat for our ears and eyes. It was as beautiful to look at as it was to listen to. Our 5th and 6th Grade Bands, Jazz Choir, and Chorus created an evening of entertainment, which the audience could see, feel and hear. From "Creepy Crawlies" to "Aztec Dance", Mr. C.'s "Tornado" to the sounds of a ticking clock, and rainbows to "Fireworks" our students brought this music to life and filled the YPAC with emotion and celebration!

Thank you and congratulations to our musicians and vocalists for their heartfelt performances, to Mrs. Grover and Mr. C. for sharing their expertise and passion for what they do, and to Mr. Dustin for his wonderful accompaniment and support of our music program. We can't wait to see what tonight will bring! 
Mr. C. does the same
The elegant, sophisticated music performed by the HMS Symphonic Band, Jazz Choir, and 7th/8th Grade Chorus evoked strong emotion and inspiration.

The band's beautiful interpretation of "Grace" and "The Haunted Carousel", and the moving songs performed by the Concert Choir, which connect to our 8th graders' Civil Rights work, created a musical story, combining elements of performance art with the songs.

The wonderful tributes to Mr. Brann by our students, Mrs. Grover, Mr. C., and Mrs. Lenardson added to this special evening.

We thank our students for all of their work, which culminated in this unique evening. Our appreciation to Mrs. Grover and Mr. C. for teaching us about the power of music, and to Mr. Dustin for his expert accompaniment and support of our musicians!
