Thursday, December 20, was Salem Jr. High's first orchestra concert. It was a spectacular show with amazing music. The 7th, 8th, and 9th grade orchestras all performed, and they were also joined by the Salem Hills High orchestras. The 7th grade opened up the show with three amazing songs. The first song they played was "Up On a Housetop" followed by "Brandenburg Concerto No. 5", and they concluded their performance with the "Can Can." The next group to play was the 8th grade orchestra. They had an amazing performance playing two great Christmas songs, "Fum, Fum, Fum," and "Canon." Next up were the 9th graders. They played the songs "Pat-a-Pan", and the "Themes From the Nutcracker." They had an amazing performance. After the 9th graders finished, the high schoolers got up and played their songs. They played "Greensleeves", "Sleigh Ride", and "A Mad Russians Christmas", and did a spectacular job. To conclude the concert, all of the orchestras got back on stage and played two final numbers. They first played Carol of the Bells combined, then ended the concert with Silent Night. It was an amazing concert that left you wanting to hear more. Each of the orchestras did a great job, and can't wait until their next concert.
