The winter concert presented by Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn High School instrumental and vocal students on Feb. 22 featured something for everyone: jazz swing and rock classics; music from movie soundtracks; classics by the Beatles and Three Dog Night; and a chorale based on a traditional spiritual.
The jazz band performed "Jump, Jive an' Wail," "Feeling Good" and "Vehicle." Featured soloists were Olivia Grooters on trombone, Jasmine Lux on trap set and Megan Recher on trumpet.
Concert band selections included "Music from Beauty and the Beast," Soundtrack Highlights from "The Hunger Games" and "Music for a Darkened Theatre."
"Sir Duke" and "In My Life" were performed by the jazz choir. Soloists for "Shambala" were Jaela Anliker, Juliana Pasillas, Alexa Reed-Clancy, Jasmine Lux, Jessica Riedemann, Ethan Diehm and Kylie Jatho.
The concert choir women performed "Into the Unknown" from "Frozen II." The full choir concluded the evening with "Hallelujah" from "Shrek" and "True Light," featuring soloists Kylie Jatho and Brieann Van Sloten.
