music man

Anders who is a member of the Symphonic Band at River Falls High School performed in Expeditions! last night.

They performed Havendance by David Holsinger--Requiem to a Land Forgotten by Robert Sheldon--Fuego del Alma by Carl Strommen (great trumpet solo by Anders' friend Seth) and the whole 10th-12th grades joined together to play The Stars and Stripes Forever by John Phillip Sousa.

My favorites were Fuego del Alma for the Symphonic Band, Arabesque by Samuel R. Hazo performed by the Wind Symphony (the auditioned band that Anders is hoping to get into next year) and The Stars and Stripes Forever.

We also learned the band is planning a trip to Orlando Spring Break 2019...so exciting!
