High school music students present Concert on the Ave
Music wafted up and down Burns Avenue on Monday evening, October 12. The Springfield High School Band, under the direction of Stephen Seaberg, and the Concert Choir, under the direction of Bailey Cords, presented an outdoor “Concert on the Ave.” Parents and friends enjoyed the concert performed outdoors in front of the media center with the audience parked or seated in the east school parking lot.
The high school band played some light music, including Bohemian Rhapsody and Remember Me, along with pep band songs, including Radioactive and Seven Nation Army. Small group ensembles and solos were performed by the concert choir, including Sparks Fly, Say Something, Make You Feel My Love, Hey There Delilah, Natural Woman, When I Look At You, Back to December and Million Reasons. The juniors in the choir sang Elton John’s I’m Still Standing and the seniors sang A Graduation Medley.
The band and choir have been rehearsing daily in some unique indoor and outdoor settings to abide by COVID guidelines. With the uncertainty of any winter or holiday concerts this year, the directors are trying to come up with unique ways to allow the students to perform despite COVID.
The Concert on the Ave. concluded with The Victors, Springfield High School’s school song.
