The halls were alive with the sound of music

On Tuesday May 17th the Sky View High School String Orchestra and Concert Choir entertained a small group of family members, fellow students, and friends in one of their final performances of the year. In a beautiful mix of orchestral music and vocal pageantry those in attendance at Tuesday’s concert were treated to a wonderful performance that showcased the amazing talent of these students.

In the choir room, Tuesday night, John Caldwell is trying to get his 93-student choir organized so they can squeeze onto the small stand that will be set up on the stage. The process is somewhat chaotic, but they are making progress. Meanwhile the orchestra is warming up in the auditorium — the sound of musicians noodling on their instruments comes wafting down the hall. Eventually Caldwell gets everyone sorted and they move into the concert hall, not to the stage but to their seats — it’s not their turn, yet.
