Herman Intermediate hosted their first Band Concert of the year on October 26, 2017 in the cafeteria. Mrs. Duena, the Band Director, has been preparing the kids for this event ever since the first band meeting. Rehearsals though, did not go as perfectly as planned. 

“Most of the time band is easy, but learning new pieces is harder than it looks,” said band student Owen Scheid “It just seems like we need more time.” Everyone is glad that Mrs. Duena arrives to school early because without her commitment, students  would not experience the enjoyment of music.

The AdVenture Band went head to head with the Herman Band in this concert. Angelina Ongolea, a 7th grade AdVenture STEM student said, “The Herman Band was good, but the songs were a bit boring.” Herman songs included Enchanting Forest, Creepy crawlies and Lets Go Band. AdVentures songs include Pandora, Morning Mist, Rockin Halloween, Dark Adventure and the annual Dr. Rockenstein.

“Band is fun and enjoyable. It is a free program and concerts are like the next big step to getting better at our instruments. Even though our band teacher makes a few odd faces when we mess up she knows we try our hardest,” said Angelina.

Students are excited to perform at the Christmas Concert on December 6, 2017. The concert will include twenty Carols in two minutes, Still, Still, Still; Jingle Bells and Jungle Drums, Hanukkah is Here and the Christmas annual piece, Famous Cannon. Choir will be performing as well with songs like Winter sleigh ride and Winter Wonder Land. Jazz band will be performing a Jazzy Merry Christmas.
