The Riverton Middle School band will perform its final concert at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Robert A. Peck Arts Center Theater at Central Wyoming College.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The band has been practicing since March, and band director Zachary Tolman said he expects an "outstanding performance." He said every grade level is playing "top quality right now."
The band has had success at recent music festivals. The sixth-grade band was one point away from a perfect score at the Central Wyoming Middle School and Jr. High Large Group Festival in Riverton. Eighth-graders took first place in their division at the Music in the Park festal in Utah.
At the concert, sixth-grade percussion will perform "Calypso Morning" and "German Dance." The seventh-grade group will play "Reverie" and "Hunter's Chorus" from "Der Freischutz," and eighth-grade percussion will perform "Musette" and "Spring" from "The Four Seasons."
The sixth-grade concert band will perform "Two Chinese Folk Songs," "American Folk Trilogy" and "Latin Fire" while the seventh-graders are set to play "Abington Ridge," "America the Beautiful" and "Carnival of the Animals." The eighth-grade concert band will perform "Brazilian Folk Dance," movements two and three, "Heroic Variations" and "Jungle Dance."
