Spring Concert


On Thursday-16-May. the Bogota High School Fine Arts Department held their Spring Concert for 2024. The evening began with the Concert Band, under the Direction of Mr. David Abraham, performing “Bink’s Sake” and “Overtaken/Drums of Liberation,” both from the anime “One Piece.” Some of the Band members dressed up as the anime’s characters and acted out a scene at the beginning of the song. Before the band played their next number, Mr. Abraham introduced the four Senior members. They were Ms. Mia Sneyers, Mr. Wilson Games, Mr. Ivan Estevez, and Mr. Marvin Madera. They were all presented a yellow rose. They next played “Alternate Time” and finished was a medley of the “Music of Jurassic Park” from the “Jurassic Park” film series.
  Before the Intermission, Mr. Abraham played a short film of the Marching Band from the Fall Marching season. During the Intermission, the audience was invited to look at the Gallery of Art from Students art classes. This was set-up in the hallways on the first floor.
  The second act started with the Concert Choir, under the direction of Mr. Michael Prachthauser. With only two of its members onstage, they sang a few notes of “In the Heights” from the Musical “In the Heights.” The rest of the Choir slowly joined them until the full choir was assembled. Next, they sang “Ave Verum Corpus,” “What was I Made For?” from the “Barbie” movie. Before their final song Mr. Prachthauser recognized Seniors Ms. Darli Gonzalez, and Ms. Jocelyn Rodriguez also with a yellow rose. They sang “Baba Yetu.” for their final tune.
   This was followed by the Purple Notes taking the stage and started with singing” So it Goes” and “Someone Like You” in A cappella, style. For the final piece they were accompanied by Ms. Harmony Chau and members of the for a “Glee” version of “Somebody to Love.”
