The Sky View bands have come a long way since their first concert last November. It was a good concert for the first trimester. They played a lot of fun songs and had fun themselves. Yet it lacked the cohesiveness of truly great bands. What a difference six months make. Tuesday night the Sky View Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band and Percussion Ensembles delivered superior performances across the board. Rich sound, excellent intonation, tight rhythms, smooth phrasing. No wonder they did so well at state band festivals this year.
Cartoons and classics, movies and patriotism shared the stage Thursday night as the Sky View Concert Band and Symphonic Band performed for a large audience. Each band played two songs and then combined together to perform two songs in honor of Veterans Day.
