Dan Carlson, Band and Orchestra Director, Skyview Middle School, Bothell

The Spring Band Concert at Skyview Middle School in Bothell was really two concerts on one night: one at 6 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m. on 13 March 2019. The first part was by the fifth and sixth grade bands. The second was by the 7th and 8th grade bands. Both are under the baton of Conductor Dan Carlson.

The 5th grade band performed 8 short pieces from Standard of Excellence, Book I, by Bruce Pearson and one sheet music piece, “Yankee Doodle.” Mr. Carlson is the SMS Band and Orchestra Director. Students in this band come from four nearby elementary schools: Canyon Creek, Crystal Springs, Fernwood, and Lockwood. Mr. Carlson is assisted by three sectional instructors: Jane Lin (percussion), Tyler Rogers (woodwinds), and me (brass—i.e., trumpet and trombone).

The 6th grade band performed “Canto and Caprice” by James Curnow; “Dueling Dragons” by Robert W. Smith; and “Legend of the Alhambra” by Mark Williams. All but three of the 17 brass players at the concert were in my class last year.

I did not stay for second concert by the Jazz Band, 7th Grade Band, and 8th Grade Band which started at 7 p.m., but, here again, most of the brass players were in my class when they first started.
