SHS band and choir department to hold fundraiser dance

Spring is here, and what better way is there to celebrate than with some terrific tunage? The SHS band and choir department is holding their third annual Big Band Fundraiser dance on Wednesday, May 15 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Kalif Shrine on Loucks. The dance will feature Sheridan High School’s own Jazz Band and Spectrum singers. Tickets, sold at $10 for adults and $5 for students, include not only grand music but dessert as well.

SHS senior and jazz band musician Max Marquis says, “It’s a really fun environment… not like any other band concert… this includes a dance, nothing like any dances teens today have been to. We had a lot of fun last year, and I have no doubt that this year’s will be just as fun.” The musicians and staff members involved are looking forward to a music-filled week-night. Junior Spencer Porden says, “Its going to be a great time for everybody to enjoy. The thing that’s cool about it is that instead of dancing to a DJ, you get to dance to a real-live band…you get to dance for two hours to some pretty awesome music. And at the same time, it helps the music department raise money [for] the music program at SHS. So it’s basically a win-win situation for everybody, and it’s sure to be one of the most enjoyable school-sponsored events of the year.”

The  school year is drawing to an end, so come help support the school, its  music department, and the arts of Sheridan.
