Spring 2012 Concert Band and Concert Choir Concert
Last Sunday, April 29, the Concert Choir and School Bands performed for a large end-of-the-season show, and an excellent one.
You can see photographs from the concert on either Flickr (good for downloading favorites) or on Facebook.
I recorded a couple numbers from each group for your enjoyment. First, the Concert Choir sings "Choose Something Like a Star," followed by two numbers, "No Mari," featuring Yusheng Li on clarinet, and the ""Take Me To the Water."

"No Mark" and "Take Me to the Water":
The College Band also provided the audience with an uplifting and challenging selection of music, beginning with Alfred Reed's "Millennium III" and concluding with "Of Sailors and Whales: Five Scenes From Melville" by W. Francis Mc. Beth.
You can watch all of "Millennium III" and two Sections, "Queequeg" and "Ahab, from the scenes from Melville's Moby Dick that feature the narration of Josh Young, Director of Theater at Peru State College
