LIVINGSTON, NJ- On Thursday Dec. 11, the Livingston High School (LHS) band put on its annual winter showcase, featuring the concert band, symphonic band, and wind symphony.

The concert band opened the night of music with “The Glacier Express,” followed by “A Celebration of Hanukkah,” which featured sections from Jewish holiday numbers. The concert band’s final piece was “The Candy Man,” by Bricusse/Newly, during which some band members walked through the audience passing out candy canes.

Following the concert band was the Symphonic Band, which played “Fantasy and American Sailing Songs,” the irresistibly catchy “Song and Dance,” by Richard Saucedo, and Themes From “The Nutcracker,” a holiday classic. The Nutcracker arrangement in particular was striking and festive.

The wind symphony was the final act of the evening, beginning their performance with “Amparito Roca” and “Groove Music.” Following those, senior Jason Kim performed as the featured oboe player in “Gabriel’s Oboe.” The night closed with “Ukrainian Bell Carol.”

“I could just feel the music, the whole night was so good,” raved senior Kerry Zak as she left the concert. The night was a wonderful celebration of LHS’ skilled band programs, all run under director Michael Jedwabnick. After such a successful performance, the spring concert looks even more promising.”

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
