Students of Harrison Avenue Perform Spring Concert

Students from the Harrison Avenue School performed some classic tunes Tuesday night for the school’s annual spring concert.

Harrison High School ’s auditorium, where the concert was held, was packed for the program, "An Instrumental Celebration." The show featured students from grades third to fifth in various bands.

Third graders opened the show with a recorder concert themed "Fun in the Sun," under the direction of the school's Cris Spinner, who arranged all the selections. Songs included "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," "The Village Polka," and "Surfin' Safari."

"I'm sure everyone is surprised how great they all sounded together," Spinner said.

Third grader Shai Gropper said performing in front of the crowd was "awesome."

"My class was so lucky to be picked to sit up front," Gropper said.

His mother Tamara said the class did a "terrific job" and demonstrated some equally impressive dance moves.

The show also featured the fourth and fifth grade string orchestras and the fourth and fifth grade concert band, a group Spinner referred to as "a force to be reckoned with."

The concert band performed classics such as "My Girl," and closed with Harrison's famous "Huskies Fight Song."
