Throwback Thursday | 2007 Band and Choir

As the WHS band and choir prepare to perform at the first concert of the year, we look back to the 2007 music program, led by director Jayme Malsom. The 2021 band will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the WHS auditorium. The choir performances will include a medley of songs from “Stranger Things” and the sea chanty “Wellerman.” The band will perform songs including “Rainbow Connection.”

“I’m really excited about finally getting to perform with the band and choir in our beautiful auditorium,” director Jaime Rogers said. “Both groups are going to make some good music tonight. We’re going to perform and it’s going to sound awesome.”
