On Tuesday, March 16th, a benefit concert was held for the Red Cross to support the various countries that were devastated by natural disasters. The concert opened up around 6:00 pm to the Art Gallery that was created by the art students. The Jazz band started off the musical section at 6:30. They played several pieces including “Night in Tunisia” and “How High the Moon.” The concert band then performed and played “Washington Post March” and an old classic called “The First Suite in Eb” by Holst. The concert continued with the Symphonic Orchestra and the Philharmonic Orchestra then ended with the Chamber Orchestra. The money was raised was donated to the Red Cross.
Eager students of Mrs. Mitchell, Mrs. Roberts, and Mr. Isley of Spanish Fork High recently took a trip to two art shows. One at the BYU “Mirror Mirror” show, showing humans in everything they do, from emotions to activities, portraying the art of life. Springville Art Museum was the next stop, where students enjoyed a High School Art Show that was taking place, previewing all different types of art. This was all for the students, in looking at the art to help apply techniques to their own art work back in the classroom. Student art work was displayed at the Benefit Concert.
