On Thursday, March 11, Sanborn Central and Woonsocket Schools held a vocal/band contest for local students under the direction of music instructor Jenny Easton and band instructor Janae Hofer. 

The Sanborn Central students held their performances in the morning, and Woonsocket students held their performances in the afternoon. The event took place in each of the schools’ band rooms. All the day’s performances were judged by Sandy Selland. The performances included vocal solos, duets, trios, ensembles, and instrumental solos. Students in grades six through 12 participated in the event.

The vocal/band contest is a great way for young performers to get experience performing individually and in small groups for a judge and audience while gaining confidence in their talents.

One day last week, Darin Schmiedt, Woonsocket’s Industrial Technology Instructor, took advantage of a local connection to the Wilbur-Ellis aviation department to take his students in his aviation class on an informative field trip. Woonsocket resident Brandon Goergen just happens to work for Wilbur-Ellis as an aviation mechanic at the Wilbur-Ellis hangar in Huron, so he and a co-worker, Nich Matthews, answered questions and took the students on a tour of their facility. Matthews is one of the spray-plane pilots for Wilbur-Ellis, so he and Goergen worked together to explain all the elements of working in their department.

On Monday, March 8, the Sanborn Central and Woonsocket bands united to put on a combined performance called the “Pops and Pep Band Concert.” Due to COVID-19 safety restrictions, the pep band did not perform at the high school basketball games throughout the 2020-2021 season. To replace the missed pep band performances, which are usually part of a band student’s grade, Janae Hofer, the Sanborn Central and Woonsocket Schools shared band director, decided to schedule the Pops and Pep Band Concert. The concert featured all band students, fifth through 12th grade.
