Wheatley Spring Concert (Part 1) is a Breath of Fresh Air!

The first of our two spring concerts was held on Wednesday, 30 May in the Wheatley Auditorium. The evening featured our Stage Band (under the direction of Peggy Ho), our Jazz Band (under the direction of Steve Fitzko), our Intermediate Chorus (under the direction of Angela Luftig with Rick Wilson as accompanist), our Intermediate/Concert Band (under the direction of Peggy Ho and Stan Orlovsky) and our Symphonic Band (under the direction of Peggy Ho).

At the beginning of the concert, Dr. Danielle Gately presented the Wheatley music department with a $250 gift certificate from Sam Ash in recognition of the district being named recently as one of the Best Communities for Music Education.

The concert featured scores of student performers, with 14 of them being members of the Class of 2018. These graduating students have committed countless hours to our music program over the years. We are grateful for their participation and wish them a music-filled life as they graduate from Wheatley!
