Concert at Mercier Orchards – June 2nd


GHS and CCMS Bands Cap Year with Spring Concert


There really is something very special about music. Many times I only find myself listening to music while accomplishing something else. I listen while I work, sometimes even as I write. A night like that of May 2 allows people to stop and enjoy music for the joy and expression it offers.

Some people attended for their children or family, others to support a friend. All were treated to a very special display of musical talent as both the 8th Grade CCMS Band and the Gilmer High School Symphonic Band took the stage for their 2017 Spring Concert.

The night actually began before either band took the stage as the pre-show entertainment showcased the Gilmer Jazz Cats drawing people in to their seats with songs like Elvis Presley’s Why Do Fools Fall in Love, a crowd favorite.

Directed by Jessica Nohner, the 8th Grade Band set the rhythm for the night with Forward MarchAsh Lawn, and Old Time Rock & Roll before joining with the GHS Symphonic Band to provide one song together. Honoring those in military service, the Marches of the Armed Forces not only allowed the audience to see the combined talents of both bands, but also showcased the service of veterans in the audience as they stood for their branch of service.

Closing out the night, the GHS Symphonic Band presented some recognizable songs alongside classical songs with Farandole, GREASE!, On a Hymnsong with Phillip Bliss, The Lion King, and Stars and Stripes Forever.
