H-M-B spring concert K-12
The Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock School Music Department (K-12), under the direction of Mr. Paulson, presented the spring music concert last Thursday evening. The audience enjoyed a touch of Broadway, a touch of Swing, A touch of Ireland, and a touch of Vegas during the performance.
The band jazzed it up with a Glenn Miller favorite, “In the Mood” while the 3rd & 4th grade swing dancing group, led by Ms. Stoltz, tripped the light fantastic under the street lamps.
Shantel Bender and Logan Carpenter, who earned a star rating at Regionals with their alto sax duet titled “Fugata,” were headed for the state music competition May 4 in Minot.
Marissa Grove sang “You’re a Monster, Oliver” from the “Oliver” production.
Tara Dahl sang “Who WIll Buy” from the “Olive” production recently presented at H-M-B.
Sambrea Rath (at left) and her sister, Sierra Rath, sang “You Raise Me Up.” Parts of the melody of “Raise Me Up” are based on a traditional Irish tune.
The Irish melody “Isle of Innisfree” was performed by all soloists. From left: Hannah Jangula, Lindsey Aman, Makenna Reich, Maria Shea, Sambrea Rath, Elizabeth Reese, Madison Reich, Megan Jangula and Sierra Rath.
Elementary students K-1 had a great time singing some Shirley Temple favorites- “Animal Crackers in my Soup” and “On the Good Ship Lollipop.” In fact, they even got to break some balloons for their finale.
The evening performance ended with a rousing “All God’s Creatures Have a Place in the Choir” accompanied by none other than Celtic Thunder - (well, yes, they were on screen, but it was still great) - and it didn’t end until the audience joined in by clapping their hands with the music.
From left, Tara Dahl, Marissa Grove and Summer Schick joined their voices to give the audience a taste of next year’s planned musical production “Annie.”
The group got a Regional rating of I with their rendition of the “Lion Sleeps Tonight” - or the a’WimbaWay” song with soloist Elizabeth Reese.
The choir sang “Take Me Home” with soloists (from left) Caleb Reese, Lance Weiser and Sam Reese.
