The concert was held outdoors in the John E. N. Howard Bandshell, at the end of State Street. It was a beautiful night for an outdoor concert; the audience had a view of the river and lake. The bandshell is nearby the Whitcomb Retirement home, and many residents came out on the beautiful night to support the students.
There were 5 bands from Lake Michigan Catholic Schools, ranging from the 5th and 6th graders through high school. It's a treat to hear the progression, and definitely inspiring to the younger students to share a venue with the oldest band.
Joe Jarvie is a 30-year veteran of band direction. He created a wonderful presentation, showcasing the student's talents as well as hard work.
One of the five bands was the newest addition- the high school jazz band! The Spring Concert marked their community debut.
