On March 9th, Kennedy’s band, drumline, and orchestra performed their spring concert for the students, parents and Kennedy staff in the auditorium. The concert was promoted as a fundraising event for Doctors Without Borders. The organization helps people worldwide by delivering emergency aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care.
The concert started off with Jazz Band, which performed “The Simpson’s Theme”, “Human Nature” by Michael Jackson, and “Whiplash” by Hank Levy. Winter Percussion’s “En Route” was an exciting and enthusiastic performance accompanied by choreography. Orchestra performed “Vortex”, “Enchanted” (a medley from the movie Enchanted), and “Pirates of the Caribbean” beautifully. Concert Band performed “The Last Centaur”, a mystical, magical composition, the familiar tune “Appalachian Spring”, “Symphonic Dance No. 3, Fiesta”, and “Arromanches”..
All music groups gave an outstanding performance, playing the right notes and rhythms in perfect unison, and it can easily be said that Kennedy’s musicians are the most advanced in the district and are on par with professional. Their dedication to music is admirable as they spend a great deal of time before school, after school, and on weekends practicing, which contributes to their flawless performances.
