In perfect harmony
KGHS Concert & Jazz Ensemble performs at Master’s Banquet
On Friday, April 24, at the King George Lodge, number 314, the King George High School Concert & Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Aaron Noe, provided an evening of entertainment before an audience of Masons and music enthusiasts. “I have the best job in the world, because I teach the best students in King George High School every single day,” Noe said.
For years, Noe has broadened the music perspective of the KGHS band by taking them on field trips throughout the country.
The band performed a medley of music renditions originating from the theme Small Town Sketches, which featured the following pieces: Concert in the Park; Winter Walk in the Park; Friday Night Football Game; County Fair.
Speakers during the banquet featured Past Worthy Matron, Doris Upson, Reverend Dr. Larry Finch, Sr., pastor of Antioch Baptist Church, Past District Deputy and Grand Master, George Jackson, Past Master Darryl Scott, Minister Frankie White, Pastor Tyree Smith and Worshipful Master of King George Lodge number 314, Darrell W. Upson.
Proceeds raised during the event were donated to the King George High School music program. Throughout the 2008-2009 school year, the Mason Lodge and the King George School Board have collaborated on the projects including the Spelling Bee contest at King George Middle School and the Science Fair at Sealston Elementary School. Also, the Lodge has established a scholarship for this year’s graduating seniors at King George High School.
Brenda Collins provided food services for the banquet.
