Students Make Music and History at Spring Concert

Spring Concert

Since the Winter Concert held in March, our students have been working hard preparing a program of music of a variety of styles from around the world. More than 40 students took to our stage in Humann Theatre to delight our community with classical, jazz, country, and rock and roll. The program included performances by our handbell ensemble, instrumental ensemble, three solos, music class, and four songs by Cardigan’s very own student rock band.

It was the final performance of the evening that made musical history at Cardigan. Before the last song by “Jimmy Wu and the Wingnuts,” some special guests joined the band on stage, a brass section of seven students called “The Lightning Bolts.” Mr. Burritt announced that “It’s quite possible that this is the first rock and roll band to play on stage in 30 years. It’s definitely the first time in Cardigan history that a brass section has joined. We’re making history!”
