Payson Junior High Orchestras performed for the very last time this year in front of each other and family and friends in a very wonderful concert. It was full of beautiful songs and energetic, crowd-pleasing music that everyone seemed to enjoy. The performers were well-prepared and eager to show their families a sample of all their hard work put in on their instruments both individually, and as groups, during the past several months.
Trophies, certificates, and prizes for switching instruments, going the extra mile, completion of Jr. High Orchestra, and the perfect practice chart record for the year were awarded. The concert ended on a rousing high note with a rendition of "Themes from Pirates of the Caribbean" performed by the Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Orchestras combined together. They were accompanied by several students from the orchestra, and a couple of guest musicians from the band on percussion.
