Forsyth Music Department presents spring concert

The Forsyth Schools Music Department presented their spring concert on Sunday afternoon, May 5, to an appreciative audience of families and friends.


The concert opened with the Middle School Choir, directed by Mrs. Payton Burnett and accompanied by Mrs. Hannah Gailey. The choir selections included pieces performed by the district honor choir this spring, “Goliath,” and “Child of Peace,” and Mrs. Burnett acknowledged several choir students who participated in the honor event.


Following the choir, Mr. Philip Thomas introduced the sixth grade band and the seventh/eighth grade middle school band, in a combined performance featuring a variety of styles. Selections included “Fanfare for the Common Band,” composed by Jonathan Martin, a former student of Mr. Thomas who has also composed or arranged music for the Forsyth High School Band’s fall marching show for the past two years.


The High School Band then performed their spring contest pieces, for which they earned a II rating this year. Mr. Thomas also acknowledged seniors Savannah Corcoran, Easton Siwek, Jackson Douglas and Caitlynne Kelly for their contributions during their years in the band program. The high school band was then joined by the sevent/eighth grade band for the final number, “You Belong to Me.”


Both Mrs. Burnett and Mr. Thomas thanked the families in attendance for their support in bringing students to practices and events, reminding attendees that music is something that takes time and commitment but pays off in a skill these young people can enjoy for the rest of their lives.
