FJHS 7th Grade Concert Draws Large Crowd


Fulton Junior High School seventh-graders performed their recent holiday concert for a packed gymnasium.
Two flutists and clarinetists played Christmas classics as attendees settled in the gymnasium. The orchestra opened the concert with songs “Battle of the Ancient Dragons” and “Jingle Bell Rock.” The song “Struttin’” featured a component for bass players called “slap the bass” which created a unique string sound. The 101-member chorus sang “A Festive Madrigal” acapella and “Sanctus” in German before they sang “Christmas in About Three Minutes,” a compilation of holiday favorites. The band concluded the show with three holiday tunes and a performance of “All About That Bass” by pop star Meghan Trainor.
