Spring hasn’t sprung, but music was certainly in full bloom on the evening of March 17 at John C. Birdlebough High School.
The school welcomed the Phoenix Community Band for its much anticipated spring concert performance.
Under the direction of Director David Frateschi, a talented blend of nearly 70 musicians performed nine songs and featured several guest conductors including Colleen Dailey, Robert Taylor and John Hylkema.
In recognition of the Irish holiday, the band also performed a special “Riverdance” piece with Neal Saarie serving as the captain.
The Phoenix Community Band is in its 11th year in the Phoenix community and performs several concerts at the high school throughout the year.
For more information about the band, visit the Phoenix Central School District website at PhoenixCSD.org.
The band’s practice schedule can be found on the district’s calendar or more information can be found under the ‘Community’ link at the top of the page.
