Bauder Elementary Loves What Northern Colorado NHB Delivers

posted Feb 26, 2018, 9:29 AM by Northern Colorado New Horizons Band   [ updated Feb 26, 2018, 9:42 AM ]


     Valentine’s Day was extra special for the kids at Bauder Elementary School in Fort Collins, CO this year as they were treated to two performances, one by the full Northern Colorado New Horizons Concert Band and the other by our Dixieland Band!  Our band loved performing for this well-mannered and enthusiastic crowd.

     There were at least four favorite tunes the students commented on in their follow-on thank you notes to the band: “Disney at the Movies”, “Highlights from the Phantom of the Opera”, “Trolls”, and by far, the most popular tune was “Sponge Bob Square Pants”.

     During the “Phantom of the Opera” tune, Glenn Shull directed the band AS the Phantom and Linda Johnson (percussion) provided the authentic shrill scream, as one could envision the chandelier falling!

     Associate Director Kay Broughton also led the band in an exciting “Trolls” number once Barbara Shull introduced the piece by explaining to the students what trolls were.

     The Dixieland Band rounded out the groups’ performances by playing traditional jazz tunes in the center pod area of the school.  Students going to lunch in the cafeteria heard us playing this style of music which was unfamiliar to most of torhe children.  It was a great feeling seeing the happy faces as the kids bopped into the lunchroom as they passed us by!
