After hundreds of practices, countless miles marched, and dozens of songs performed, seniors in band bid farewell Tuesday’s final concert of the year Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.

For senior Olivia Brucker, the concert is one last chance to enjoy the rush of performing.

“One reason I’ve stuck with band for so long is not only the social aspects but also because when I sit down and play in a concert and I close my eyes and I take in the music that we are making,” Brucker said. “And I know that it’s making an impact on the audience and makes an impact on my because I’m a part of that project. I’m one of the stepping stones to that final rush of goosebumps or something. It’s just a really cool feeling.”

Playing songs such as the theme music for Game of Thrones and music from Ant-Man and Wasp, the concert will combine the work of different bands.

“I’m most excited to hear all the really great work that each of the ensembles have been placing within each of these pieces for the culmination of the year,” assistant band director Zach Anderson said.

In the band program since freshman year, Tuesday’s performance will be bittersweet for senior Tyler Clinesmith.

“For nearly four years I developed pretty good relationships with all fellow band members so it’ll be kind of a happy sad moment and we’re all moving on,” Clinesmith said. “We’re going to do great things. We’re going to miss each other and I think it’ll be a good time.”
