The KNIGHT Bands and the CRUSADER Bands, under the direction of Allen Hisken, performed Tuesday evening at WHS, giving all a great send off to the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Called "Sounds of New Beginnings & Festive Seasons", the evening commenced with a "Demonstration Concert" performed by the WMS 6th Graders. Their first year for band and their first concert. The young Knights shined. Their Knight elders, the 7th & 8th graders, would follow with selections ranging from Starburst Fanfare to iJingle, a selection that encouraged audience cell phone participation. At Mr. Hisken's request, many downloaded a "Bells Jingling" APP on their phones and joined in with the Knight musicians on stage, during their last number.
The FINALE would feature the Crusader Band, with a mix of Christmas themed selections, including Feliz Navidad, Fanfare on "Joy to the World", and Sleigh Ride. Morgan Bacon and Brody Groom performed a clarinet duet as well. Nice crowd present, fine performances by all!
