On Wednesday, November 19th the Prairie Middle School Concert Band, 7 & 8th grade students participated in the District II Junior High School Fall Band Festival. The middle school band represented the Cottonwood community with pride and excellence in their musical performance. The band performed three compositions which were musically challenging for middle school students. They performed "Liberty March", a patriotic march by James Swearingen, "Canticum", a musical hymn of praise and thanksgiving by James Curnow, and High Falls Overture, a high spirited composition again by James Searingen. Mr. Eynon could not be any prouder of the manner in which our students conducted themselves, the effort they put into to preparing for this festival, and the success they achieved in their performance. The band will perform these selections along with several other holiday pieces at the middle school Winter Concert on Monday, December 15th at 7:00 p.m. Join us for their performance and be a part of the enthusiasm that is growing in the Cottonwood S.D. music program.
