On Tuesday May 17th the Sky View High School String Orchestra and Concert Choir entertained a small group of family members, fellow students, and friends in one of their final performances of the year. In a beautiful mix of orchestral music and vocal pageantry those in attendance at Tuesday’s concert were treated to a wonderful performance that showcased the amazing talent of these students.

Consisting of sing-a-longs, popular tunes, and original compositions, the evening’s performances brought smiles and nostalgia to the faces of all who listened.

Sky View Bands end year with “Superior” performance

The Sky View bands have come a long way since their first concert last November. It was a good concert for the first trimester. They played a lot of fun songs and had fun themselves. Yet it lacked the cohesiveness of truly great bands. What a difference six months make. Tuesday night the Sky View Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band and Percussion Ensembles delivered superior performances across the board. Rich sound, excellent intonation, tight rhythms, smooth phrasing. No wonder they did so well at state band festivals this year.

Sky View’s show choir, Encore, put on a superb show last week. The group of ten girls and ten guys performed hits from big band era to today at the Sky View auditorium. Kicking it off with Footloose they put everything they had into the show. “We are real proud of them, they are amazing,” said John Caldwell. John and his wife, Jen, are co-directors for Encore. “Every year when you think maybe we are going to cut back and do less and less — then you have the show and you think it is totally worth it.”

Seven bands battle it out at Sky View

Last Thursday the Sky View Auditorium was anything but quiet. Inside, tension was building as bands were preparing to jam their hearts out in front of three amazing judges. The judges for this event were Jared Allen, Chris Hampton, and Keith Larsen. The extravagant Mr. Reeder was the host for the evening. His hilarious remarks only added to the show.

Sky View orchestra and choir put on quite a show

In the choir room, Tuesday night, John Caldwell is trying to get his 93-student choir organized so they can squeeze onto the small stand that will be set up on the stage. The process is somewhat chaotic, but they are making progress. Meanwhile the orchestra is warming up in the auditorium — the sound of musicians noodling on their instruments comes wafting down the hall. Eventually Caldwell gets everyone sorted and they move into the concert hall, not to the stage but to their seats — it’s not their turn, yet.
