East Grand musicians show talent at Holiday Concerts

East Grand School District musicians and choir singers showed their stuff earlier this month with a pair of holiday concerts held at Middle Park High School.

The two concerts were held on the two Wednesday’s immediately preceding the start of Christmas break for East Grand students and staff with a combined junior high and high school band concert on Dec. 13 and a similarly combined choir concert on Dec. 20. East Grand Music Director Brad Pregeant led both shows with assistance from East Grand music instructor and tutor Lynnea Godfriaux. Additionally recent Middle Park High graduate Matthew Hardman helped direct the high school choir through a rendition of Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler’s song “Stormy Weather”.

The Holiday Band Concert featured performances by the high school band, the seventh and eighth-grade bands and a special performance by Middle Park High’s student led musical ensemble “!possible bueno?”.

Last Wednesday choir concert included performances by the high school and junior high choirs and included Christmas favorites such as “Rocking Around The Christmas Tree”, nonseasonal classics like “La Bamba” and one song created by East Grand music instructor Lynnea Godfriaux called “Christmas Time in the Rockies”.

Dozens of students from sixth-grade through senior year participated in the two concerts this year while hundreds of parents, community members and school staffers filled the high school auditorium in Granby.
