Cairo High School Bands to perform Sunday afternoon

The Cairo High School Bands will present their 65th annual spring concert Sunday.
The concert begins at 2:30 p.m. in the CHS auditorium and features the Syrupmaker Symphonic, and Symphony Bands. Several sections will be featured by each of the bands.  
The program will begin with an “exciting” concert opener entitled “Fire” by Gary Gilroy, according to Director Johnny Folsom. The concert will continue with an arrangement of our state song “Georgia On My Mind,” and the Symphonic Band will conclude its portion of the concert with a musical picture of the Flint River commissioned by Albany’s Darton College Band, “Voices of the Thronateeska.”  The Symphony Band will open with John Klohr’s circus march, “Billboard.”  Then, the band will present Robert W. Smith’s monumental tribute to Texas entitled “Star of Dreams” and Smith’s reflective piece “In a Gentle Rain,” which will feature three senior soloists, Zach Boyd, Alexis Forrest and Tessa Gilliard. Also, the concert will spotlight one of the biggest pop divas with the music of Lady Gaga.  And, the Symphony Band will close the Sunday afternoon performance with a spectacular patriotic finale of “America the Brave.”
“You don’t want to miss this one. The 65th annual spring concert by the Cairo Syrupmaker Bands is this Sunday, May 1, at 2:30 p.m., in the CHS Auditorium,” Folsom says.
