Next during the program several of the groups performed their contest pieces include a brass quartet playing “March and Gavotte,” followed by the saxophone choir on “Romance and Troika.”  The final group performing was the clarinet choir on “Meneuetto.”

The Friends of Vocal group performed an excellent rendition of “Si Vis Amari” to close the vocal portion of the program.

The Junior Senior High band did an excellent job on “Mamma Mia!” before performing their two contest pieces “Blue Ridge Saga,” and “Southern Star.”
