On Monday evening, Feb. 13, 2012, the Sweetwater ISD Bands will treat the community to a â€śCoffee House Concertâ€ť in the Sweetwater High School Cafeteria. From 6-8:30 p.m., student musicians will perform, as audience members snack on desserts and soft drinks.
For just $5, each listener can fill his plate with desserts! The evening will start with the sixth grade band (at 6 p.m.), followed by the seventh and eighth grade band and jazz band at 6:30 p.m., and finally the high school band at 7:45 p.m.
Music will range from the marches of John Philip Sousa to â€śRiders on the Stormâ€ť by The Doors, to the classic wedding favorite, â€śCanonâ€ť by Pachelbel.Â
High School Saxophonist Chase Scott will perform â€śIlluminationsâ€ť as a featured soloist. All-State clarinetist Crysten Ivy will perform music from the motion picture â€śDefianceâ€ť, as soloist with the high school band. Ensembles will include the high school brass quartet, clarinet quartet and percussion ensemble.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the SISD Band Program. â€śWe hope to have a great turn-out for this come-and-go event,â€ť commented Ross Grant, band director.
