Tonight, May 26, 2016, the El Modena Instrumental Music Department hosted their final concert of the year in the school cafeteria. For seniors, it was their last concert playing with their fellow high school colleagues.

The Jazz Ensemble started off the night by playing themes from different films including The Children of Sanchez, Star Wars, and The Incredibles. Their performance left the audience excited and intrigued. The String Orchestra followed, performing songs from classic movies such as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Pocahontas, and The Lion King. The symphonic band joined in with the Orchestra to play the last few numbers from Pirates of the Caribbean and Apollo 13. The combination made for an intricate and enthralling sound.

Color Guard performed beautifully with the song “To Build A Home” by Cinematic Orchestra. The Guard members displayed their skills with their flags, sabers, and rifles. Overall, it was a truly graceful show.

The most memorable event of the night was the Symphonic Band’s performance of the Star Trek: Into Darkness theme. Although the band played many beautiful pieces from well-known films, the theme ended the night strongly and left the audience cheering out loud.
