April Concerts: We had two amazing concerts in April. The Symphony Orchestra’s Spring Showcase on April 8th was a huge success. Thank you to all who attended. We enjoyed performing some of our favorites from previous concerts and our smaller ensemble pieces. Our Spring Fling, a combined choir and jazz band concert on April 15th, was also a blast. It is fun to see these two relatively new pieces of the Arts Council perform together. We look forward to many future combined projects with these groups.
