On the evening of February 23rd, the Lee County bands hosted their annual Pre-Fest Concert in the high school auditorium.
Band members were working hard before the concert to set the stage for this important performance.
Mr. Carter opened up the concert with a humorous introduction and members for the LCMS-West 7th grade band filed on stage for the first performance.
The West side 7th grade band played an upbeat first song, a mellow second song, and a cheery third song.
The East band played next with a dynamic program. Their program consisted of a bold, loud first piece, a tranquil, soft second piece, and an intense, adventurous third song.
The high school symphonic, our freshmen instrumentalists, played third.Mr. Carter led a thorough warm up for their Level 3 program. Their song list was Hypnotic Fireflies, a beautiful piece, Night Flight, an energetic, fun song, and Scrabble, which had an action movie vibe to it.
Ms. Kaiser’s 8th graders followed the Symphonic band.
The Wind Ensemble played last, a brilliant finale.
The bands will be evaluated and ranked in LGPE (Large Group Performance) in March. Based on their performances, the bands will be nothing less than superior when LGPE rolls around.
