Spring Band Concert

The O. T. Bonner Middle School Band Spring Concert was a wonderful success! The May 12th concert featured the Sixth Grade Band, the Seventh Grade Concert Band, and the Eighth Grade Symphonic Band. The concert also featured performances by the Percussion Ensemble, the Bonner Quartet, the Percussion Duet, and the Jazz Ensemble.
The Sixth Grade Band played Eye of the Tiger, Stonehenge, and Apache. The Seventh Grade Concert band performed Mission Impossible Theme, Best of the Beatles, Whispers, and Bluin’ the Blues. The Percussion Ensemble performed an improvisation. The Eighth Grade Symphonic Band performed Raider’s March, Gabriel’s Oboe, Eaglerock, and Theme from Halo. Gabriel’s Oboe featured soloist Clara MacFarland, an eighth grader at Bonner.

The Bonner Quartet played selections from Quartets for All. The Percussion Duet presented a piece titled Two Part Invention No. 8. Finally, the Jazz Ensemble played Sax in the City and One Flight Down.

The Bonner band students have put in a great deal of hard work and effort this year under the leadership and direction of Mrs. Katie Mitchell. Congratulations to the students and Mrs. Mitchell on an outstanding performance.
