On Monday, October 24, 2016, was the 2016 Fall Band and Choir Concert. Under the direction of Mrs. Valeri Brokaw for the first time, all of the middle school and high school bands and choirs performed starting with the sixth-grade band. The sixth-grade band played “Crown of Majesty” by Robert Sheldon and “Rock the House” by Brian Balmages. The middle school choir with Mrs. Kim High playing the piano sang “Alleluia Canon” written by W.A. Mozart, arr. Donald Moore and “Awesome God” by Rich Mullins. The middle school band played “Regal March” written by Bruce Pearson & Chuck Elledge and also played “The Tempest” by Robert W. Smith.
During the last part of the concert the High School Band and Choir performed. The High School Choir, accompanied by Mrs. High playing the piano sang “Only Hope” by Jonathan Foreman, arr. Ed Lojeski and “Elijah Rock” by Howard Shore, arr. Ralph Ford. Last but not least the night ended with the High School Praise Team singing “In the River” by Quilala/Schoolmeesters /Silverberg/Williams and “When You Walk into the Room” by Katie & Bryan Torwalt. The High School band played “Fire Dance” by David Shaffer and “Highlights from Lord of the Rings” by Howard Shore, arr. Ralph Ford. Mrs. Brokaw was very happy with the performance and stated, “It was fun to put together the music for the Fall Concert. The students at every level worked hard, and I was pleased with the way they remembered the things we’d worked on. It’s all about using the gifts God has given us to honor Him and bless others. I hope we did that!”
