Virgin Valley High School music students will present two concerts, rounding out their school year. The public is invited to attend these free concerts, both held at the VVHS campus at 820 Valley View Drive, Mesquite. These enthusiastic young musicians perform under the direction of VVHS orchestra and choir instructor, Marie Palmer. Donations to the VVHS music programs are gratefully accepted and will help provide new sheet music and other supplies for the VVHS Music Program.
Guitar Concert May 8, 5pm
Wednesday, May 8, a guitar recital will be presented at the VVHS Student Center at 5:00pm. This concert will feature beginning and advanced players performing as an ensemble as well as in small groups and soloists. The VVHS guitarists have gained a shining reputation for their popular performances over the past year, including a concert in the park last spring, and a special medley of island songs played on ukuleles at a scholarship fundraiser in March.
Choir and Orchestra Concert May 16, 6:30pm
The VVHS Choir and Orchestra “Finale” concert and senior showcase will be presented at the
VVHS Auditorium at 6:30pm on Thursday, May 16. The musicians have recently participated in the Clark County School District Festival, and the Orchestra will include numbers from that competition in their concert, as well as performing jazz/blues tunes. The Chamber Ensemble Group plays a sole and ensemble piece, and there will be three senior small ensembles and solos. The Choir will perform familiar songs including, “My Girl, My Guy,” “Happy Together,” “The Longest Time,” and others. Choir seniors will be featured in the number, “Some Nights,” and “I Was Here.”
Please mark your calendar to attend these free concerts and show VVHS students your appreciation for their musical achievements.
