Kicking off Forney’s holiday season, for the second consecutive year the United States Air Force Band of the West presented a beautifully arranged free concert at the Forney High School Performing Arts Center.
USAF Band of the West Commander and Conductor Dave Elpar began the concert by introducing the FHS Color Guard for the presentation of Colors which was accompanied by a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem.
A highly acclaimed 45-member ensemble orchestra that regularly performs at formal military ceremonies, educational clinics, and public concerts throughout the Southern United States, preformed a two hour concert before a standing room only crowd of Forney families, and this year eighteen FISD orchestra students were invited to perform with the band.
A true honor and nod to the talent of these young musicians; please enjoy their performance of “Sleigh Bells”.
