Tuesday concert features major WHS music groups

WORTHINGTON -- The annual Region 2AA Large Group Contest Concert, featuring all four of Worthington High School's major music ensembles, will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the WHS gymnasium.

Guest adjudicators/clinicians will offer critiques following each ensemble's performance.

"This concert marks the only time on the school-year calendar when all the WHS large music groups perform together," said Jon Loy, WHS band director. "It's become the highlight concert of the year."

Loy says his 105-member concert band has "its most demanding contest program we've done in recent years, due to the difficulty of the pieces involved.

"The kids have really grown through the process, both musically and emotionally," he continued. "It's hard to get a band to play with emotion, and to have that come across to the listener, but they've done a nice job of capturing that in the pieces."
