The audience was not the only one to enjoy the “Scoops and Tunes” pop concert March 3; the participants said that they also had a swell time.
The second annual pop concert was a collaboration of the music programs as well as a feature of a guitarist. A rising note started off the concert, one that’s considered more loose and less reliant on the classics often performed by high school bands.
The program started with a medley of Pixar classics, such as “The Incredibles” and “Toy Story.” These were sophomore Zoë Boomershine’s favorite because it reminded her of her childhood.
The program switched between band and choir performances in front of capacity crowd as ice cream was served to guests outside.
Besides the ice cream, highlights included a 20-saxophonist group spanning the width of the cafeteria covered “Root Beer Rag” by Billy Joel.
Another key point of the program was when junior Sam Franz sang “She Will be Loved” by Maroon 5 and “This Town” by Niall Horan accompanied by her own guitar instrumental.
A crowd favorite was the “Spider-Man Theme Song” where one student wore a Spider-Man mask midway through the program. In addition, the flute solo by junior Savidu Geevaratne impressed the crowd.
The fun and lax spirit of the event is what some performers liked most. Junior Jackson Baker, said he enjoyed the pop concert more than more traditional concerts because “they’re a lot more relaxed and we have a lot more fun.”
Others, such as sophomore Anastasia Langner, prefer more traditional concerts.
“They’re more familiar and the overall expectation for how the night could play out is better (in traditional concerts).”
