The Edward Town Middle School Winter Concert, held last night at the Niagara Wheatfield High School Auditorium, amazed the parents, friends & relatives sitting in the audience. The ETMS Jazz Choir, Bands, Concert Choirs & Jazz Band all performed with great spirit and musical mastery.
The first half of the concert began with two invigorating jazz pieces performed by the ETMS Jazz Choir. Next the sixth grade band deftly displayed the ensemble skills they acquired in the short span of 4 months. The band was followed by their fellow six graders in the Concert Choir who similarly pleased the crowd with their vocal renderings.
After a brief intermission, the music began in earnest as Director Chris Peracciny’s Jazz Band rocked the crowd. Then the mood became more solemn as the seventh and eight grade concert chorus under the direction of Kenneth Fick presented a beautiful holiday sampling ending in the “Carol of the Bells.” Director John Scime’s seventh and eight grade band concluded the evening with a whimsical set of festive music.
Thanks to the directors, students and all who made last night such a special evening.
