On Wednesday, May 15, the Belleville High School Band, under the direction of Mrs. Meir, and the Choir, under the direction of Mrs. Krueger, performed in front of the typical packed house for their annual Spring concert. The night began with the Symphonic Band playing four songs, including "Scarborough Fair," made famous by Simon & Garfunkel. After awards and a clearing of the stage, the Treble (Women's) Choir performed four songs, highlighted by "Jolene" and soloist Mili Julian. The night wrapped up with four more songs from the Concert Choir. The audience enjoyed the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" and the more recent "Shallow" from the soundtrack of A Star is Born, featuring soloists Connor DeLorme and Anna Nolden.
More than 65 students played in the band, and over 110 sang in the choir. Mrs. Meir said farewell to 10 seniors, while Mrs. Krueger bid adieu to another 27 seniors. It was a night filled with emotion.
Don't forget that Jazz in the Park will take place in one week- on Wednesday, May 22, at 6pm in Library Park!
