Band and orchestra students end the year on a high note
Intermediate elementary band and orchestra students from Kirk, Lakeview and Community Elementary Schools ended their year with a public concert at Third Place Commons in Lake Forest Park, Wash.
The orchestra, led by Natalie Fuentes and co-teacher Patricia Lyon, performed “El Toro” and “Russian Music Box.” Michael Lundquist and co-teacher Jeremy Atkins led the band through several pieces including “Riverside March,” “Ode to Joy” and “Boogie Blues.”
In addition to the ensemble pieces, many students got to show off the results of a year of practice and hard work with solo performances.
“The trip to Third Place Books,” said Ms. Fuentes, “is an amazing time for our students to perform for the community and represent LWSD.”
