In the words of Plato, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” Due to the pandemic, the SJS cadet and advanced bands under the guidance of music teacher and band director, Mrs. Hurlburt looked a little different this Spring. That did not deter the cadet and advanced bands taking lessons with Mrs. Hurlburt, “playing together” and preparing for the annual SJS Spring band concert.
Instead of the glorious band sounds echoing through the hallways at SJS, they now resonated in SJS family homes. Parents have commented on the joy of listening to their students play and hearing other SJS students on Zoom and Facetime calls. Mother Elaine and SJS administration are grateful for Mrs. Hurlburt and her continued dedication to our music and band students. We thank her for all the time she dedicated weekly and for the compilation of the SJS Spring Concert 2020. Music did truly provide life to everything in many homes during this pandemic.
