The High School Concert Series Kicks off for the 2019/2020 School Year!
Congratulations to Mr. Fabrizio and the students of the Concert Band, Symphonic Winds, and the 8th Grade Band, for a fantastic Fall Concert, held at the West Essex Middle School Auditorium on Tuesday November 19, 2019.
Among a number of selections, the audience was treated to a special combined performance of Randall Standridge’s Adrenaline Engines, with the 8th Grade Band Students sharing the stage with the two High School ensembles for a Grand Finale. And grand it was, as the auditorium was absolutely filled with the wonderful sound of more than 130 musicians!
Friends and family were also treated to an enjoyably technical piece by composer Bruce Yurko, Night Dances, with Mr. Yurko in the audience! It was a rare and special opportunity for the students to perform a piece for the composer himself.
Thank you to the West Essex Band Boosters for providing hospitality after the concert, where concertgoers, musicians and staff had the opportunity to mingle and enjoy light refreshments.
