For all of you that missed the winter band concert, it was on December 15th, 2015 at 7pm. The band and Mrs. Hansen also known as Ms. Krause, put on a fantastic show. They all wore black and blue and some more Santa hats. Mrs. Hansen started off the show with her famous poem that she repeats every year. It has become a tradition for her and her students.
The first performance was put on by the drumline. They started with the famous Laker pep rally song that everyone gets up and dances to. They did a great job and started the concert out right and in a fun way. The following performances were by percussion ensembles, jazz band, symphonic band, orchestra, and wind ensemble. Some songs that were played during the show were Little Jazz Drummer Boy, Hot Chocolate, Jazzy Holidays, We Three Kings, and Angels Sing.
There were also a lot of fun solos to show off the student’s talent individually. It was seeing them do their solos because they really got into it and showed how much they enjoy playing the instrument of their choice.
Congratulations to Mrs. Hansen and everyone in all the types of the band for an outstanding performance. Everyone that missed this year’s performance, make sure you go and see the winter band concert next year, especially if you love Christmas music!
