As the school year comes to an end, band is preparing to honor and give awards to seniors at their last performance on Wednesday.

“The spring (band) show is a chance to highlight a lot of our seniors,” band director James Wallace said. “(We) also have some performances by some of our smaller groups, percussion, and ensemble.”

Seniors will be recognized and given plaques. Different awards include the “John Philip Sousa award,” and the “Louis Armstrong Jazz award.”

Music Boosters will give a scholarship to one of the graduates.

Music Boosters are a group that represents the band, choir and orchestra programs and offers scholarship opportunities to students.  

The band concert will be at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.

“The concert is really great since it gives our students a chance to show what they’ve been working on in these eight weeks,” Wallace said.

Teachers and students are working together and learning in the process of preparing for the concert.

“We’ve learned a lot about the kids and how hard we can push to become even better,” Wallace said.

Students are practicing every day during their class period.

“We make sure we’re choosing music that shows the skills of the students and gives us new challenges and skills to work on,” Wallace said.

Wallace encourages everyone to see the concert.

“I would invite everyone to come out and see the concert, and it’s free of charge,” Wallace said.
