Middle School Band Concert Brings McAneny Theater Crowd To Their Feet

Chris Gillespie, Middle and Upper School Band Director, couldn’t be more proud of the Middle School band and their final performance in McAneny Theater this school year. He said, “Both the 6th grade Expedition Band and the 7th/8th grade Odyssey Band performed admirably in the last concert of the year. The crowd was electric and the students fed off of the energy with a rousing performance that will be remembered for many years to come.”

He continued, “The 6th grade band's rendition of Star Wars was an instant classic as the audience cheered and cheered.  The 7th/8th grade band brought down the house with Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline.  The standing ovation at the end of the concert justified the dedication of these 8th graders through the last two years of uncertainty and hardship due to COVID related protocols for the music world. I am so very proud of all the middle school band students.”
