This week is an important one for members of Providence Academy’s three main musical groups–band, strings, and choir.

The Upper School Symphonic Band played for students and parents on Monday the 10th.

According to director of the Symphonic Band, Mr. Thomas Jones, the theme for the Upper School’s concert was “a general idea of music from different geographical areas ¬†around the world.”

Mr. Jones said that despite the natural annual attrition of band members due to graduation, he does not expect the quality of the band to diminish.
