Beckwith Middle School's annual Spring Chorus Concert was held on Monday, June 13th in the D-R Regional High School auditorium. Choral students, under the direction of Ms. Lynnette Lopez and accompanied by Ms. Melissa Grossi, performed an exciting selection of music which opened with the 5th grade chorus' beautiful rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner." Other memorable selections throughout the night included "So Long, Farewell" from The Sound of Music, “This is Me" from 2017 film The Greatest Showman, Irving Berlin's “Blue Skies,” Lilo & Stitch's "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride," and a medley from The Lion King. Congratulations to all choral students and Ms. Lopez on a wonderful performance!
Our annual Spring Band Concert was held on Thursday, June 9th. Under the direction of Mr. Francese, band students performed a variety of selections from different styles of music. Some pieces that 5th and 6th Grade Band performed at the concert included "Frère Jacques," which students performed in a 3 part round, and "Montego Bay," a calypso song which was their first
advanced piece of the year. 7th and 8th Grade Combined Band performed "Twilight Smiling" and "Midnight Mission." 8th Grade Band performed an energetic piece called "Shockwave" on their own. Many students also bravely performed solos on their own and in small groups. Thank you to all students for their hard work and dedication this year.
Congratulations to all band students and Mr. Francese on a wonderful performance!
