CHESTERTON | The Westchester Intermediate School sixth grade band performed its spring band concert at the school. Students in the group began studying their chosen instrument at the beginning of the school year just seven months ago and this event marks the third of four concerts scheduled for the WIS band this year.
The audience was treated to three music selections including “A Shaker March,” arranged by John Kinyon; the familiar melody of the American folksong “Shenandoah,” arranged by Michael Sweeney; and a haunting production piece reflecting sounds of native America entitled, “Spirit of the Wolf,” composed by Michael Oare.
The fourth and final free concert on the band’s schedule will take place at 7 p.m. May 30 at Chesterton High School. The Westchester and Liberty Intermediate School bands will combine to perform as one mass ensemble for this event. Also performing in this concert will be the seventh and eighth grade bands from Chesterton Middle School along with the Chesterton High School Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Bands.
