The Oak Ridge High School Band will play in a rescheduled concert at 7 p.m. today (Tuesday) at the Historic Grove Theater.
The band includes 29 students who earned chairs through auditions to participate in the annual ETSBOA All East Clinic.
“We had the second largest number of band students from any school to participate in the event and had players on flute, B-flat and bass clarinet, bassoon, alto and baritone sax, trumpet, horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, and percussion,” a press release said. “Directors Spence Milligan and Mike Spirko would like to invite you to come enjoy the combined talents of these students and the entire ORHS Band.”
Season ticket holders should note that the date and venue for this concert was rescheduled from February due to weather; bring your tickets!
The Concert and Symphonic Bands will be performing their competition pieces, which will be rated at the ETSBOA State Concert Festival the following Thursday. The JazzKats will “Come Out Swingin” with a piece by Larry Neeck, followed by the Concert Band performing “Hill Country Holiday” by Robert Sheldon. The Symphonic Band will be closing the evening with the not to be missed “March Slav, Op. 31” by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
Tickets are $3 for adults, $1 for seniors (your call!), and students.
