Trills and Thrills By David McKinney Jr.

Trills and Thrills
By David McKinney Jr.   

Recently, the Island Trees Performing groups took a field trip to Neptune High School in New Jersey for a performance, and for a day at Six Flags, Great Adventure. There were amazing performances by:

  • Orchestra:
  • Band
  • Jazz Band
  • Chorus

Six Flags was a very fun time. We spent about 4 hours there, and we definitely deserved the time that we got. Although, the bus ride was long and rough, mostly because of the traffic. We were about two hours late for the performance, but it was alright because most of the groups after us had cancelled, how sad. To all the performers, good job, you were great. Since this is from an orchestra player’s perspective, this is what the orchestra played:

  1. Spirit of the American West
  2. William Tell Overture - Finale

Thank you to Mrs. McGrory, Mr. Cava, Mr. Ingenito, Mrs. Clarke, and many others for the amazing performance.
