A Little Night’s Music

A full house of music lovers was present when the Montross Middle School presented its annual Spring Concert on May 1, 2014.  Three bands, 6th Grade Beginning Band, 8th Grade Jazz Combo, and the 7th & 8th Grade Concert Band, dazzled the crowd with old standard favorites and tuneful marches.

The sixth grand band started the festivities with the Knightsbridge March, a tuneful piece which features each section of the band. Creative percussion effects were in full force with the Dance of the Jabberwocky based on the Lewis Caroll’s gibberish poem, Jabberwocky. The students finished their set with the sounds of a spy mission as they parlayed the tune Midnight Mission against the backdrop of a ticking clock.

It was all about show tunes when the 8th Grade Jazz Combo blasted forth the James Bond, Mission Impossible, and Pink Panther themes. Starting with the theme music, First Impressions, the Jazz Combo had the crowd cheering after each selection.

The 7th and 8th Grade Concert Band closed the evening’s music fest by combining for four concert pieces. Setting the tone with the Golden Eagle March and continuing with the magical As the Eagle Flies, the students showed their competency and musical progress with the deeply emotional piece, In the Shining of Stars. The band closed the program with the dramatic Rites of Tamburo, which had the upper woodwinds playing memorable “riffs” while the brass and percussion added exciting hits throughout the piece. The dramatic crescendo brought the audience to their feet as the room exploded into a standing ovation for the students.

The bands were expertly and lovingly led by maestro Rob Wright. Congratulations to all the participating students who have represented Westmoreland County Public Schools in their musical performances.
