On Wednesday, Nov. 8, the bands put on their fall concert performance. The freshmen band started off the show with “Valley Forge March”, composed by John Edmonson. They followed with “Green Mountain Rhapsody” by Anne McGinty, and finished with “African Marching Song” by John O’Reilly.

“‘African Marching Songwas the most fun to play because it’s so fast-paced and really gets you into the song,” freshman and percussionist Aaron Schaal said.

Varsity band followed freshmen band with “Colonel Bogey March” by Eric Osterling, and “Snake Charmer” by Randall Standridge. They finished off their set with the song “You’re Welcome”  from the movie Moana.

“The performance went really well, all the bands did amazing,” senior and vibraphonist Derrick VanWay said.

Jazz band was the finishing act, performing “In a Mellow Tone” by Duke Ellington, and arranged by Mark Taylor. “Cantaloupe Island” was played next, which was written by Herbie Hancock and arranged by Mike Kamuf. Their third song was “Backatown” written by Troy Andrews and arranged by John Wasson. The concert was finished with a fan favorite, “Ghostbusters”.
