On Tuesday Dec. 11, the LQHS’s Concert Band and Wind Symphony performed in the LQHS theater. The concert band  played “Abington Ridge Overture” by Ed Huckeby featuring Joseph Herrera-Molina (‘22) with a trumpet solo, “Little Suite for Band” by Clare Grundman which included “Prelude,” a ballad with trumpet solo by Jeronimo Castro (‘22) and other classic numbers.  

Afterward, the wind symphony took the stage and performed “Ride” by Samuel R. Hazo with a saxophone solo by Gannon Gardner (’19) and “Christmas Through the Looking Glass” by D. Lovrien with a clarinet solo by Melissa Smith (‘19).

Listening to the music you can hear and see how hard they worked to put on a beautiful show for their parents and friends that night. French Hornist Sebastian Rivera (‘20)  stated, “I know we sounded good as a unit for the first concert. There were some bumpy roads [to get here] but there are more concerts to come.” Flutist Melissa Smith (‘19) explained, “I think it went well. Everyone had fun, and that’s what made it great.”
