May 23, 2013 at 8:15 AM

MILLBURN, NJ - The varied band ensembles of Millburn High School graced the audience with several classical pieces on Wednesday, May 22 . Performing bands included the high school’s Concert Band, directed by Matthew Spatz, and the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band Blue and Symphonic Band White, directed by Mindy Scheierman. A total of 251 students performed in the concert, presenting songs that they have rehearsed since their last concert on Feb. 6.

Michelle Breitenbach, having served as a student teacher for the band ensembles, also served as a conductor for several numbers during the night.

“It has been a really great experience, and definitely the best part of my college experience so far. These kids are really responsive and helpful and understanding, and it’s great,” Breitenbach said.

This concert also marked the last performance for 42 senior band members. Mollie Murphy, a senior, said, “It’s bittersweet. I can’t wait to go to college, but I also don’t want to leave here.”

“I’ll miss the seniors very much and I want to recognize their contributions to the program. It was a lovely way to end the concert. I’m very proud of them,” Scheierman said.

The Concert Band began the program, playing Of Spirit and Splendor by Charles Rochester Young, Old Castles by Bruce Yurko, and Grizzly Bear Rag by Timothy Broege, followed by the Wind Ensemble with Crest of Honor by David R. Gillingham and Pineapple Poll by Arthur Sullivan.

The night continued with Symphonic Band Blue, performing Danse Bohemien by Randall D. Standridge, Brazilian Folk Dance Suit by William E. Rhoads, Six Dukes Went A-Fishin’ by Percy Grainger, and Sunburst by Erik Morales. Symphonic Band White closed off the night with Rise of the Firebird by Steven Reineke, Fantasy on a Mountain Song by William Himes, Prairie Dances by David R. Holsinger, and Summer Resounding! by Brain Balmages.

Millburn High School now looks forward to hosting the orchestra and chorus concert on Thursday, June 6.
