Cardigan Celebrates Music at the Spring Concert

Cardigan's Spring Concert

It's hard to believe the academic year is almost over and soon Cardigan's students will be headed home for the summer. But before they do, they spent one last night sharing their hard work and creative skills during a celebration of music in Humann Theater. This spring's concert featured a wide range of music, including numbers by Taylor Swift and AC/DC to Louis Armstrong and Gustav Holst, and it was played on instruments from the ukulele to the euphonium. From trumpet solos to class performances, from the debut appearance of The Nebulas to the classic style of The Friday Night Players, there's a little something for everyone in this final performance of the year!
