This year’s “Winter Holiday Concert” at Inglemoor High School’s (IHS’s) Performing Arts Gymnasium in Kenmore on 18 December 2014, started with about 30 minutes of music by the school’s jazz band, as the full-house audience arrived and got seated in the grandstands. They played Bernard’s “Winter Wonderland,” among other tunes. Mr. Jim Rice is the Jazz Band Director, and he also conducted the Symphonic Band (including “Themes from ‘The Nutcracker'”) and String Orchestra (Holtz’s “In the Bleak Midwinter”).

Mr. Ted Christensen directed both the String Orchestra (Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride”) and the Wind Symphony (including “Flourish for Wind Band”). The Wind Ensemble featured 8 new cornets in “The Sussex Mummers’ Christmas Carol” by Richard Franko Golman. Mr. Christensen is not only the IHS Band Director but also the Northshore School District Music Coordinator. This is Mr. Christensen’s 32nd year at IHS. The Wind Ensemble took a trip in April 2015 to play at the “Ring of Fire” Concert in Carnegie Hall in New York City.

The Concert Choir, Belle Voci, and Chamber Choir were directed by Teresa Sullivan, who is both IHS Choir Director and Music Department Chair.

My First Trumpet Sectionals at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore

Posted by glennled on June 1, 2014

IHSbandOn 31 January 2014, as a para-professional, I taught my first music classes at Inglemoor High School. Several trumpet ensembles from two IHS bands, the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band, were in the final week of practice for the regional competition to be held on Saturday, 8 February. Winners advanced to the state competition.

On my first day, I critiqued their practice sessions, and for the remainder of this school year, I will continue to teach their sectional sessions. I work with the Symphonic Band trumpeters (8) on Mondays and the Wind Ensemble trumpeters (7) on Fridays. Mr. Ted Christensen is IHS Band Director and Northshore School District Music Coordinator. He conducts the Wind Ensemble. Mr. Jim Rice is Director of the IHS Orchestra, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band.
