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.

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.”

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.
