    This combined 5th grade band/orchestra concert is a wonderful showcase of the progress students have made since starting their instruments earlier in the year. Students have the opportunity to participate in small group solos, and several combined pieces are performed. Student attendance at this concert is very important. Students love this final concert of the year!
