Holiday Concert season


The Mirror reporter

Every quarter brings something new from the Stevens Point Area Senior High’s music department and this time of year is no exception.

On Tuesday, Dec. 12 the SPASH choir is having their winter concert. It will be full of cheer and uplifting spiritual music.

Many choir students say this is their favorite concert of the year.

“One reason I love doing this concert is because we get to sing Christmas music. The music we sing brings everyone together, not only on stage but in the audience as well,” alto singer Caitlin Miller said.

On Thursday, Dec. 14 the orchestra and some band members team up to play “The Ocean’s Tide,” a piece written by young composer Maddie Metoxen.

“The SPASH Orchestra has been doing young composer pieces for a long time. I personally really like doing them. It gives us a chance to play something we’ve never seen or heard of before. But most importantly, it gives the kids a chance to show people just how good they are,” bass player Alexis Hall said.

“Doing these projects with the orchestra gives us a break from our everyday band rehearsals. It gives us a chance to try something new and work with other people for once,” trombone player Hannah Siegel said.

On Tuesday, Dec. 19 the band will have their winter concert. They will be playing Christmas music along with other types of music. Some of the songs were previously performed at the Stevens Point holiday parade.
