Come one and come all to the first in-person high school concert of the year!  The SWC 9 - 12 spring band and choir concert is scheduled for Monday, May 17th at 7:00 pm in the high school gymnasium.  This concert will feature a variety of music from movies and radio to marches and pep band.  The choir will perform pieces from “Hamilton” and “The Greatest Showman”.  They will also reprise a student favorite, “Baba Yetu”, which is the Lord’s Prayer in Swahili.  The band will be performing pieces prepared from fall and spring! We will feature a new pep band selection “Smoke on the Water”, a fun march called “Children’s March”, a medley from “Pirates of the Caribbean” and a piece we were eager to (but unable to) perform at contest titled “Pilatus: Mountain of Dragons”! Hope to see many of you in the gymnasium or join us by LIVE Stream through Christensen Broadcasting as we hear the beauty of God's blessings through the musical talents of the SWC students.
