The Rockland Senior High School Music Department held its annual Pops Concert on Thursday evening, May 4.  Directors John Piazza and David Arruda led the band and chorus in several musical pieces.

Up first was the chorus singing “Seize the Day,” “Ave Verum,” “Hallelujah,” “South African Praises,” and “Good Riddance.”

After a brief ceremony in which the band boosters presented each of the senior members of the band and chorus with flower bouquets, the band performed. Their numbers included: “Alkali Ike Rag,” “My Favorite Things,” “Highlights from Annie the Movie,”  “Selections from West Side Story,” and “Cartoon Carnival.”

On Sunday, April 30 the RHS band played an introductory set before the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s performance for the community of Rockland. It was a great opportunity for them to be a part of a unique musical experience.
