The Winter Concert

James S. & Eric G., staff writers


Did you go to the Winter Concert? If not, you missed out on a lot of good music. The music they played was very holiday related because this is indeed, The Winter Concert, is it not? Here is the list of songs the Music Department, led by Magruder Music Director David Porush, performed on December 1st, at the James Armstrong Theater.DSC_0135  Band:

  1. Crusader’s March
  2. Mexican Mountain Song
  3. DSC_0099Red Book Medley – William Banta was the guest conductor for this song.  He did a really great job.
  4. Joy Noel
  5. Russian Sailors Dance
  6. Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer– Mr. Porush said that this song was for him and that the band didn’t like it.
  7. A Christmas CanonPachelbel’s Canon & The First Noel– A beautiful and complex mix of songs.
  8. We Wish You A Merry Christmas
  9. Grant Us Peace– Was not actually played and Mr. Porush said the band was freaking out when they saw it printed in the program because it is a really hard song.  The song that they really played was Choral, which is a song the band played very well.DSC_0095

  6. Let It Go!
  7. Silver Bells
  8. Oh Christmas Tree

The master of ceremonies for the night was Mr. Ross, one of Magruder’s 6th grade Language Arts teachers.  Principal Chris Sheck and Assistant Principal Lisa Nunes were on hand to hear all of the beautiful music.  I think that Thomas ‘Haskell’ M. summed the night up by saying, “I believe the Winter Concert was a big success.”
