The school year is winding down for the band and chorus programs at Warren Street Elementary School, with the fifth and sixth grade band students performing their spring concert for fellow students and staff on the morning of June 4, followed by a concert in the JHS Performing Arts Center for family and friends that evening.

Anthony Tybor was a “pitched water jug” soloist, while Sarah Pratt and Brooke Nellis were student conductors for the concert band. Also, Roslyn Chapin was a soloist with the fifth grade chorus.
At the June 4 morning concert, participation awards were presented, and special sixth grade band and chorus awards (water bottles) were also given to the following students: Haylee Webb, winner of the water bottle design contest; Thomas Truckenmiller, “Most Improved Band Student”; Sarah Pratt, “Most Valuable Player” for band; Colleen Long, “Most Dedicated” band student; Jacob Martelle, “Best Prepared” chorus student; Brooke Nellis, “Most Helpful” chorus student; and Darrien Sira, “Most Improved” chorus student.
