This year’s concert will take place on Dec. 14. - Courtesy PhotoTo those who dare to dream, and those who live life on the edge of their seat. The Bellows Falls Union High School Music Department is cordially inviting you, the dreamer, the darer, the music lover - to attend the annual Winter Concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, in the BFUHS Auditorium.

Sit back, relax, close your eyes, and invest a couple hours of your time to think, listen, and enjoy the sounds of the season. While the fall sports season comes to a close, and as the winter season draws near, why not trade in your bleacher seat for one in front of a stage where singers and instrumentalists alike have been practicing for a performance like no other?

Witness both ends of the musical spectrum as the BFUHS Concert Band, under the direction of Nick Pelton, performs symphonies and marches. Hear senior Ethan Lauricella perform his feature piece, “Dream Song,” by Richard L. Saucedo on the grand piano. Listen to the BFUHS Jazz Ensemble swing low and scoop high on classic arrangements. You’ll be enchanted by the Concert Choir, under the direction of Mary Westbrook, as they perform a selection of holiday favorites.

A call to those who sometimes wonder what life is really about, especially as the holiday season draws near. The Winter Concert is free and open to the public. A 50-50 raffle will be held to help fund the Music Department’s trip to the competitive festival, Music In The Parks, on June 2.


Bradie Harris, a BFUHS Junior, is a member of the band and the student run news site, The Howler.
