Pops concert a hit in South Seneca schools

The South Seneca Middle/High School auditorium was bustling with excitement and song during an energetic pop music concert March 22. Student musicians from the middle school and high school took the stage to perform more than a dozen hits for an audience of family, friends, teachers and community members. The seventh and eighth grade chorus kicked off the upbeat evening of entertainment with a high-energy performance of “We Will Rock You,” featuring soloists Corrina Broadwell and Mya McCathran. With the tone set for the evening, the music continued with songs such as “Pompeii,” “Surfin’ USA” and “Final Countdown.” Performances ranged from vocal pieces to jazz band numbers. According to vocal music teacher Kyla Quinn, the concert was a great way to showcase student musicians and celebrate Music in Our Schools Month. She noted that “music enhances creative thinking and problem-solving skills,” which are valuable skills in promoting all-around student growth.High school chorus members Ryley Rasmussen, Scott Hawley, Krystofer Mosher and Cameron Vanselow perform “Pompeii” during the South Seneca Central School District’s recent pops concert.Under the direction of Raymond Zajac Jr., the South Seneca sixth grade band performs “Hawaii Five O” as part of the pops concert held March 22Student vocalists representing the South Seneca seventh and eighth grade chorus sing “We Will Rock You” to kick off the pops concert held recently in the middle/high school auditoriumFor additional pictures from the concert, check out the South Seneca Central School District’s Facebook page: facebook.com/southseneca.
