Bellbrook High School bands finished their final concert of the 2017 season with the flourish and grandeur of David Holsinger’s “American Faces,” a piece inspired by the national unity and ingenuity symbolized by Mount Rushmore. The concert highlighted the 2017 senior class and outstanding members of the ensemble with awards given throughout the concert.
Performing at the concert was the BHS Percussion Ensemble, a jazz quartet, both the concert choir and mentor choir, the jazz band, the symphony band and the wind ensemble.
The final performance was, for many students and parents, bittersweet, as it marked the end of a period in those students’ lives in which music was everything. But it was a spectacular way to end the night and, for many of the students, their career as a musician at Bellbrook High School.
