Polo Park Hosts Winter Band Concerts

Students perform during the winter concerts.

On Wednesday, Dec. 11 and Thursday, Dec. 12, Polo Park Middle School hosted its annual series of winter band concerts. The Beginning Band and Advanced Jazz Band performed on Wednesday evening, followed by the Intermediate Band and Advanced Band on Thursday evening.

Hundreds of parents, family members, teachers and administrators attended the concerts. The bands performed music ranging from the Beatles to Mussorgsky to Les Miserables.

“Our winter band concerts were great successes,” Polo Park band teacher Kevin Graham said. “We had more than 200 students perform during the two nights of concerts. I am incredibly proud of the work the students put in to make these performances successful, and I’m looking forward to our spring concerts in May.”

Based on the audience’s response, both evening performances were a success. Principal Michael Aronson thanked everyone for attending.

“I continue to be impressed with the performance of all our bands and Mr. Graham’s exceptional work,” he said.
