– by Hart Z, junior –
The elementary and junior/senior high spring concerts were held separately this year with the elementary concert on May 4 and the junior/senior high concert on May 15.
“The spring concert was artistically stimulating and moved the audience to a greater appreciation and respect for the fine arts,” said Mrs. Koechig, 5th grade teacher.
Many of the choral and instrumental pieces played in the ODACS competitions were performed at the concert, as well as a few additional songs that were learned in the last month.
ODACS sign-ups were announced during the concert. The administration decided to begin preparation for the competition earlier so that students can perform even better next year.
“I was glad that the sign-ups were announced so that we could start earlier next year,” said Logan H, sophomore.
The elementary recorder classes performed special songs they had learned. Also, the intermediate and advanced orchestras joined together and played two pieces called “Alliance” and “Silverbook.”
“I liked how big and full the orchestras sounded when they were combined,” said Malat M, 6th grade.
“I was glad we could perform our ODACS pieces for our parents,” said Savannah V, freshman.
We thank God for the gift of music we have, and we will always be grateful for the opportunity to use our talents for the Lord.
