Wednesday, November 4, the Lowry music department held a concert in the old gym. The show consisted of Lowry High School Band, Men’s Choir, Horizon, and Swing Choir, all headed by music director Mr. Paul Criddle. Overall the concert was extremely successful and was a great fundraiser for the Music Department.
The concert began at 7 p.m. at which time the band began playing “Novena”, the first of five songs.
“I think our first concert was great,” said first flute chair Suzi Jones.
The Men’s Choir was next to take the floor and performed five songs. Unfortunately, two members of the choir were unable to attend so only four members were present. Despite this fact, Men’s Choir gave a lively performance and was able to enthuse the audience.
The all-girls choir, Horizon, was the next group to perform. They sang six songs, including two from the play “Les Miserable” and “I Think We’re Alone Now” a popular hit by Tiffany.
Last was the Swing Choir which was introduced by the president of the choir, Trevor Belanger. The 19 members sang and danced to five different numbers to close out the night.
“We’ve been working really hard on all our songs so it was great to perform them,” said Swing Choir member Melanie Vance.
The music department will be working on their Christmas numbers in the upcoming weeks and will perform them in a concert in the old gym on December 19.
