The Bueker Middle School Sixth Grade Beginning Band will perform its first ever concert on Thursday, Jan. 17, along with the Marshall High School Band.
For the first time in recent history, the high school ensemble will collaborate with the MHS Choral Department as the Choraliers join them on a piece titled "The Mansions of the Lord" from the Paramount Motion Picture, "We Were Soldiers."
Other pieces to be performed include "Tempest Rising" by David Shaffer, and the popular march, "Military Escort," by Harold Bennett, who is also known as Henry Fillmore.
The bands will be under the direction of Kate Farris and her student teacher, Caitlin Bird. The concert will be held at BMS in the Harold L. Lickey Auditorium at 7 p.m.
