Along with spring and warmer weather (we hope) comes concert season at the schools.

St. Croix Central seventh and eighth graders treated a packed house to several different choral and band selections at St. Croix Central Middle School Thursday, March 20. Featured songs included El Capotin, Be Stll, Nightingale and I'se the B'y by the seventh grade choral students, directed by Michelle Schmitt. The eighth grade choir serenaded the crowd with spring appropriate selections, such as Wild Mountain Thyme, El Capotin and Inscription of Hope.

Band director Kimberly Hopkins led her seventh-grade students in rousing performances of Kookaburra, Ancient Voices, March on the King's Highway and Hurricane. The eighth grade band performed their selections well, including Marching to Pretoria, Around the World in 80 Measures and Moscow, 1941.
