 With some Santa hats and ugly sweaters, the Spanish Fork Junior High bands performed very well at the high school on Friday, December 8.

 Each of three bands, Concert Band, Beginning Band, and Jazz Band, performed well and their songs sounded great. Songs included “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and “Frosty the Snowman.”

Virtuoso Rob Landes Visits SFJH Orchestra Concert

Submitted by david.thacker on Tue, 12/12/2017 - 17:47

The SFJHS Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced orchestras performed on Monday night to a packed auditorium. 

Mrs. Harman surprised the students by having famous violinist and YouTube star Rob Landes come to the concert and perform.  Landes, whose YouTube channel has almost 30 million views, started play the violin at age 3.  His webpage describes him by say “take a classically-trained violinist who … has two music performance degrees, add a loop pedal and a dash of Ed Sheeran” and that’s Rob Landes.
