Veterans Day is coming up (Nov. 11) next week. But Hill Intermediate School students are already showing their appreciation. The campus recently celebrated its 8th Annual Patriotic Concert and Veterans’ Celebration. At the event, students sang the praises of the bravery and patriotism that our veterans embody.
Approximately 200 students took the stage to create a special and memorable evening. The sixth graders that comprise the Hill Choir and the fifth grader group known as the Hill Performers gave it there all at the event.
The concert was open to all family and community members. The campus sent a special invitation to veterans who currently serve or who have served in the United States military.
More than 200 people attended the concert. The audience enjoyed listening to students sing the national anthem. Some students even recited mini biographies of their personal heroes.
The program included many popular patriotic songs. Students sang “Feelin’ Good” by Teresa Jennings, “Fifty States in Rhyme” by Phil and Lynne Brower, and “Armed Forces — The Pride of America” arranged by Greg Gilpin. Terri Nelli created a special arrangement of the song “The Yankee Doodle Boy” by George M. Cohan. Nelli’s arrangement had the choir and Orff instrument players performing together. Nelli serves as the music coordinator at the campus.
The celebration ended with a moment to pay special recognition to veterans present. Each one received a certificate of appreciation signed by Principal Scott Corrick.
