“I think this concert will go well, like the rest of them, I’ve been practicing all of our songs and am excited for tonight. I bet all of the songs will go well, but I believe the “Halo Theme” will be the best,” sophomore Kheyvn Elsberry says.
To begin the concert, orchestra director David Swenson has sixth hour strings begin with a piece called “Folk Tune and Fiddle Dance” which features mainly upperclassmen students. Afterwards, Swenson plans to bring in the rest of his orchestra students along with a single percussion instrument to add onto the “Halo Theme”, which is a suite collection from the popular Halo video games. Following this, the rest of the selected band students will come out and join the orchestra in “Romanian Overture”, which will feature a small solo from senior violinist Adam Kraft. From there on the concert will commence with “I Dreamed a Dream” from the play Les Miserables, to which senior Kassandra Foltz will be singing. Finally, the Boone High strings and band will finish will a short piece called “Night on Bald Mountain”.
The concert will begin at 7:30 in the Boone High School auditorium this Tuesday night.
