Winter Band Concert


The Salem Jr. High Band held their annual Winter concert on Monday December 10th at Salem Jr. High. All band classes were involved in the performance which included the beginning brass, beginning woodwind, beginning percussion, advanced percussion, concert band, and jazz band.

The concert included several traditional Christmas carols performed by the beginning bands, a neat rendition of "Carol of the Bells" performed by the advanced percussion ensemble, Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" performed by the jazz band, and short tour through music of the Nutcracker ballet performed by the concert band in a quick changing piece titled "The 3-Minute Nutcracker."

Students were excited to share their talents with family and friends and many expressed how much they enjoyed the concert.

Thank you to all who attended and for supporting the band. 

Drama 1 Performance


Last week, the drama 1 performed plays in front of an audience of friends and family. They worked hard on these performances and did a great job. Our drama department always does a great job.

The pictures above are from the B2 evening performance of The Polka-dot Thief.

Look forward to a play coming in the spring. They will be performing Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
