First-Rate Music Festival

Apr 02, 2016 04:21PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

The Area Band Festival at College Park with students from Pleasant Hill's elementary and middle schools as well as the CPHS bands.

College Park recently hosted two area music festivals: March 7 for band students and March 14 for orchestra students in grades 5 through 12. The festival is an annual showcase for the instrumental music programs in the Pleasant Hill elementary schools, middle schools and the high school. The five Pleasant Hill Elementary Schools combined 100 5th grade students into one large ensemble. According to instrumental music teacher Josephine Bromley, “The three elementary instrumental music teachers agreed on music selections 3-4 months in advance and students rehearsed together for the first time just an hour before the performance. The middle schools combined into one 100-plus-member group as well. The high school had two ensembles perform.” 

The evening ended with a grand finale in which the bands combined for a stirring rendition of "America, the Beautiful," and the orchestras played a multi-level piece called "Sol Do Concerto." The festival is held every year in March to celebrate Music in Our Schools Month.
