Spring pops concert caps stellar year

Student musicians will perform their last concerts after a busy and award-winning school year at Sisters' middle and high schools.

The choir department, led by Choir Director Rick Johnson with Music Assistant Julie Cash, will perform "This Is Me" from "The Greatest Showman" with the Sisters High School Concert Choir, as well as many other favorite pop songs with the other choirs in the school district.

"The choir students have had an amazing year, and this concert is the culmination of all their hard work," said Johnson. "This is the most difficult music of the year for every group performing, and they are handling it like professionals. I can't wait for the public to hear them perform."

Director of Bands Tyler Cranor knows audiences will enjoy the entire program. However, he is especially excited to play Disney film soundtracks because he gets to share some of his childhood favorites with this generation of students.

"It is so fun to be able to put music in front of students that they can relate to but has been too difficult for them to perform until now," said Cranor. "The growth of their musicianship this year has been astounding, and this spring concert is a time to have some fun and reap the rewards."

Earlier this year, the Sisters High School Choir attended the Central Oregon festival and received the highest rating at the festival, among any school regardless of size. The Sisters High School Wind Ensemble showed its advancing musicianship by performing challenging pieces at the Central Oregon Band Festival. Three ensemble members qualified for the state OSAA (Oregon School Activities Association) Solo State Championships. The choir and band also joined talents for popular performances of the musical "Cinderella."

Hear the choir and band at their upcoming Spring Pops Concerts. The choir performs on Wednesday, May 23; and the band performs on Thursday, May 24. The concerts are both at Sisters High School at 7 p.m. Both are free and open to the public.
