Miller Elementary School Presents Its Winter Concert

Miller Elementary School’s 4th and 5th grade bands and its Mustang Jazz Band presented a true winter concert last night, with the snow swirling outside, and temps dipping into the teens.

Miller Elementary School’s 4th and 5th grade bands and its Mustang Jazz Band presented a true winter concert last night, with the snow swirling outside, and temps dipping into the teens.

Families and friends filled the auditorium at Holliston High School, a lucky change of venue to fit the crowd. 

Students dressed in black slacks or skirts and white blouses looked sharp as they filed onto the stage, instruments gripped at the ready.   Katie Lemoine directed the two grade level bands, leading them through a great selection of familiar and not-so-familiar tunes.  Each number concluded with the band standing for its appreciative audience.

President Terri Chamberlain of the Holliston Music Parents Association encouraged parents to join if they haven’t already.  The mission of the HMPA is to support and advocate for music, theater, fine and performing arts programs for all K-12 grade students in the Holliston Schools.  Seen below, Christine Peterson of the Miller Music Department, demonstrates Contrabass Bars purchased with grants from the HMPA.

Principal David Keim provided parents with instructions for intermission pick up of 4th grade children.  Generally the parents followed his directions.

The music and musicians' energy warmed the audience on this cold winter's night.
