The All-Bands Concert is this Wednesday night – a great opportunity to cheer for all the dedicated and talented kids who’ve been practicing their saxophones and trumpets and drums since the school year began many months ago. Thanks to Bob Arsenault for extending the invitation:
The Bristol Warren Performing Arts Department will present its annual All-Bands Concert in the Paolino Center at Roger Williams University on Wednesday, March 16 at 7pm. The concert will feature more than 300 band members from Kickemuit Middle School and Mt. Hope High School.
The concert will open with the Kickemuit 6th grade band performing “Starfire March” and “Refried Beans”. The 7th grade band follows with “Furioso” and “Pageantry for Band”. The 8th grand band concludes the KMS portion of the program with “Jefferson County Overture” and “Mallet Maniacs”. The Kickemuit Bands are conducted by Jeffrey Brackett and Melissa Labonte.
The award winning Mt. Hope High School Marching Band will feature the Flag Squad and the Dance Squad performing “Claire’s Song” and “Eye of the Tiger” directed by drum majors Richard Pavao and Emily Cambrola. The combined Concert and Symphonic Bands will present “Among the Clouds” and “Disney at the Movies” in preparation for their upcoming trip to perform in Disney World.
All musicians will combine to perform American Spirit March.
Admission to the All-Bands Concert is $5.00 and free to students and Senior Citizens.
Did you know? Practicing music helps develop and strengthen kids’ attention skills, which not only helps them become better musicians, it also extends to their other areas of study, improving their attention-skills in math class, English, science, history, and so on. And stronger attention skills lead to improved learning experiences! We’ll be cheering for our young musicians Wednesday night, but we’ll also be applauding our middle school and high school music teachers for their vital and delightful work!
