The UAHS annual winter band concert was held on Tuesday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m. in a crowded auditorium. The concert featured arrangements from the concert and symphonic bands as well as jazz and percussion ensembles.

Various groups of students received superior ratings at the Ohio Music Education Association’s district festival and the concert offered a chance for these solos and ensembles to perform.

“I always enjoy hearing what the other band groups have worked so hard on, and see how they’ve grown musically these past few months,” senior Laken Lee said of the concert. “There was a wide variety of performance happening, from the jazz ensemble playing their rep to some OMEA ensembles sharing their prepared pieces.”

This concert was Lee’s last concert before her final band concert for UAHS scheduled for April 30.

“It’s bittersweet that this is one of my last concerts as a senior, but for now I’m just enjoying making music with my friends,” Lee said.
