Shameless Plug For My Son's High School Band

On Tuesday evening, February 24, 2009, the Brentsville District High School Concert (intermediate) and Symphonic (advanced) bands gave a performance in order to practice for an upcoming music festival competition. The first three songs were performed by the combined Concert and Symphonic bands (the 8th grade band from Marstellar Middle School also performed three songs in the middle of the concert) and the last three songs were performed by the Symphonic band alone.
My son plays trombone - he's the second from the end, back row, right side of the stage (who does not sit up straight so you would otherwise see him better!)
The first (combined) piece was "Peace March Jubilee" by Karl Kung (arranged by Swearingen)

The second (combined) piece was "Prelude and Dance" by Elliot Del Borgo

The third (combined) piece was "Decennium" by John Edmondson

The first (advanced) piece was
"Medal of Valor" by Steve Hodges

The second (advanced) piece was
"Chant and Jubilo" by Francis McBeth

The third and final (advanced) piece was
"The Gathering of the Ranks at Hebron" by David Holsinger
