This year’s annual Spring Band Concert will be held in memory of Shelly Lopez, a former band member who passed away in 2014. All three high school bands will be performing in the High School Auditorium on April 30 at 2 p.m and it’s free to the public.

“You can expect to hear what all three of our bands have been working on for concert UIL, as well as the pieces that the Honor Band will be taking to the State Wind Ensemble on May 6,” band member Kendrik Kennemur said. “There also is a bonus piece that has been added to each band to add some variety and give students a chance to work on something new after UIL.”

This concert takes place after all three bands received Division 1s at the UIL concert and sight-reading contest on March 1 and 2, the highest possible score.

“All three of the bands have worked really hard this year,” Kennemur said. “The program for the bands sounds amazing, and we would all love for our parents and peers to attend, so we can perform for them and they can hear how well we have done this year on some fantastic pieces.”

This year is coming to a close for the band, aside from one more concert.

“This will be our last performance in Big Spring, however, the honor band will have another performance in Austin at the UIL State Wind Ensemble Festival, May 6th in the Bates Recital Hall on the campus of The University of Texas,” Mr. Harris said.

So before instruments are put away and music sheets are filed, be sure to come out on Sunday, April 30, to see this year’s band’s last performance in Big Spring.
