    The Schoenbar Music Department's annual "Elementary Music Tour" was scheduled for this Friday, May 1st. Traditionally the choir, jazz band and symphonic band take the musical show on the road and perform at 3 elementary schools in the district. Here is a shout-out to those students that would have performed this week! This "SpongeBob Squarepants Theme" was one of the tunes we were planning to take on tour this year.

    Meet Buddy the dog. He is a husky shepherd mix who loves to hike, run, play... and dance! He sometimes howls when I practice my saxophone and flute, but he always wags his tail when people sing to him!
