Prior to the concert, the Music Parents Association served a smorgasbord meal in the elementary school to raise funds for the local music department.
Audience members packed the HHS auditorium for a concert that featured a little taste of everything, with choirs in grades 7-12 directed by Marcia Dalton and bands in grades 5-12 led by Pat Wiebers.
Sound Check members surround Shaylee Krueger as they conclude their exciting rendition of “Love Potion Number 9” at last Thursday’s concert.
Maury Kramer also directs the show choir with Dalton, and Sharon Strauss is the concert choir’s piano accompanist.
HHS Sound Check show choir kicked things off with “Anyway” with soloist Megan Vieselmeyer, “Sincerely” featuring the Sound Check girls and soloist Brittney Prottsman and “Love Potion Number 9” with soloist Sid Struckmeyer.
The junior high concert choir sang “Let It Grow” with soloists Andrea Becerra, Jessica Mosqueda and Katy Voigt, “Hine Ma Tov” and “Sing” with soloists Drew Stewart, James Oberle, Savannah Burris and Paola Ruiz.
