On Tuesday, March 3, Northview’s 8th Grade Concert Band shared the stage with Centennial’s 10th Grade Symphonic Band and 11-12th Grade Wind Symphony, along with our first-place winning ensembles from the Perry Band Olympics. Highlights included a performance of “Happy Birthday” learned entirely from solfege and narration by superintendent, Dr. Bruce Kimpston!
