Warwick bands finish year with annual concert

By on May 28, 2014

The Warwick High School and Middle School bands are preparing to wrap up the 2013-14 school year’s concert season with their Annual Spring Concert this Sunday, June 1 at 3 p.m. in the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center.

This year’s concert will feature the High School Symphonic Band, Middle School Concert Band, and Warwick Trash Can Band. The evening will also recognize graduating seniors.

The concert will feature a wide variety of musical styles and cultures highlighted by both bands, with music ranging from Arabian dances to contemporary band music to American marches by the “March King” himself, John Phillip Sousa. Both bands will also combine at the end of the concert to play two pieces on stage, and the combined band will end the evening with their rendition of Igor Stravinsky’s “Finale from Firebird Suite.”

The event concludes with the annual Senior Tea, with refreshments, as the band celebrates the graduating seniors.

The Warwick Trash Can Band, a unique part of the show, is in its second year of existence. The group has grown from nine members last year to over 20 members this year. The group is comprised of student percussionists and non-percussionists in grades 7-12.

You can also see the Warwick Trash Can Band during a community performance on Saturday, June 7 at 2 p.m. in the area behind the Lititz Water Plant (by the district office) as part of an all day drum event hosted by drummer Bobby D.
