beyond live

Last night the school presented their year-end concert, Beyond Live.

Amy performed with the Intermediate Band, the Middle School Combined Band, and a Middle School/High School combined band.

Amy has enjoyed the opportunity to play many varieties of music this year. Last night they performed everything from Spirituals to Philip Bliss; from movie and video game theme-songs to a Shaker hymn, Simple Gifts.

Simple Gifts
'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come round right.

Ames, We are so proud of you!!! You look great and I am sure you sounded wonderful as a principal flutist.

We would have loved to have been there with you! I'm sure it was a beautiful concert.
