Spring Concerts spread the joy of music

This year's spring concerts highlighted our students hard work, commitment and passion to music, and support of each other as they delighted the audiences with their performances.

 Congratulations to the 5th Grade Band, the 6th Grade Band, the 6th Grade Jazz Choir, and the 5th and 6th Grade Chorus for a fantastic night of music! 
The 5th Grade Band kicked off the night with a rousing set of music that highlighted their growth as musicians this year. The 6th Grade Band pushed themselves with challenging songs about zombie trombones and cartoon craziness. The 6th Grade Jazz Choir took us back in time with Do Wah Diddy Diddy, complete with some spot-on beat boxing. The 5th and 6th Grade Chorus closed the evening with five songs that put a little love in everyone's heart. Many thanks to Mrs. Grover and Mr. C, as each has an uncanny ability to get the very best out of HMS's students. Bravo!

The 7th & 8th Grade Symphonic Band, 7th & 8th Grade Jazz Coir, and 7th & 8th Grade Concert Choir provided the audience with a stellar evening of music at the spring concert. The night was filled with beautiful sounds, emotion and gratitude.
Our HMS musicians and singers performed challenging pieces rich with historical significance. The students conveyed the passion behind each of the songs, which they played and sang to perfection. Their interpretations of the music made it possible for the audience to share their feelings of teamwork, community, support for each other, and the joy and emotion that music brings to our lives.
Our 8th grade students' heartfelt tributes to Mrs. Grover and Mr. C. highlighted the hard work, perseverance, time and energy that go into creating evenings like last night, and our students' gratitude and appreciation to their parents and these teachers for their support.
