Another great performance was given tonight by the Delmar High School Senior Band. The Spring concerts are always fun for everyone. Everyone cheers their favorite Senior etc. The band enjoys it as much as the audience.
Tonight started off very well by having the band come from the side entrances and back of the auditorium as they played 'The Olympic Spirit". It gave the audience a chance to see those Sax, Trombone and percussion players that are usually hidden from view because they are in the back. Also a good photo opt. I know when one of my kids played sax the only photos we had of her was made a hand or part of her face. It's important when you have someone that can't walk and chew gum at the same time to have a photo of them actually holding an instrument in a band.
The Senior Band was directed by Mr. David Smith.
The Oom-Pah Band (Adwoa Nyame, Yvette Siegel, Dillon Koval, Matt Waldman, and Josh Wilder.)
Fritz and Franz (Todd Moore and James Hastings)
Skyler Schirtzinger played "Allegro Spiritoso" on the French horn. Both french horn players are named Skyler, the other Skyler Blewitt and both have played in a number of honor's bands etc.
Miranda Wood has great posture when she plays the Baritone sax.
The Clarinets (Adwoa Nyame, Yvette Siegel, Melinda Matos, Jessica Walter, Whitley Langless, Amore Buonopane, Dhvani Patel) did "Music of the Night" (from Phantom of the Opera)
I had too leave after the Senior Band Performance and did not get to see the Jazz band.
