The SFHS Instrumental Music Classes Hold Their Final ConcertPublished by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 05/24/2011 - 10:31
The past months of hard yet entertaining work made by the SFHS instrumental music classes met their climax on Wednesday night, May 11th, at 7:00 PM. Music that originated from many different time periods was performed that night, ranging from Star wars and Pirates of the Caribbean to Finlandia and Carnival of the Animals.
Ms. Magelby, the instrumental music instructor at SFHS, worked the students in both Band and Orchestra extremely hard over the last two weeks, and the results turned out to be great. In the words of one of the fathers of a student, John Jolly said, “I've seen college symphonies have a hard time with 'Finlandia,' but [the SFHS symphony] did a phenomenal job!”
The 2011 school year was full of challenges and successes for both the Orchestra and the Band; and though the instrumental music program has struggled recently due to the new high schools being built, the determination shown by the students at SFHS has kept it going strong. The future can be sure to see many more concerts such as this one.
