The Exeter-Milligan Elementary spring concert was based on a travel theme. The performance was presented on Tuesday, March 13 in the Milligan gym.
Mrs. Angie Murphy, Exeter-Milligan band and music director, opened the program with the fifth grade band performing “Let’s Go Band.” They were joined by the sixth graders to perform “March Ahead” and “Rock to the Max, Mr. Sax,” which featured an excellent performance by the saxophone section.
Murphy presented the Bruning –Davenport contest ribbons just before the sixth grade band performed “Theme From Our Director,” and the third and fourth grade class played “Whacky Chopstix” on the boomwhackers.
The choir performance began with the kindergarten through sixth graders performing “An Adventure” together. The kindergarten through second graders performed four travel songs including the very active, “I Have A Car,” before they performed “Down at the Beach,” “Goin’ to the Zoo,” and “Going to Neptune.”
The third and fourth graders performed the catchy “Fifty Nifty United States, “Turn The Glasses Over,” and the country standby, “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
The fifth and sixth graders turned again to country with “On the Road Again,” and then sang the folk song, “John B. Sails,” before heading out east for the “Theme from New York, New York.”
The kindergarten through sixth grade joined together to close the program singing, “Headed to the Future,” featuring solos from Savana Krupicka, Troy Kallhoff, Carter Milton, Devin Harrison, Liberty Johnson and Aidan Vavra.
Guests at the concert also enjoyed viewing the art gallery of students’ recent artwork.
