Fall ConcertStudents from Mr. Gray’s “Ocho Blanco” English class shared their reactions to the first concert of this year:

  • “What surprised me about last night’s music was how confident everyone was during their performances. Even though it must’ve been terrifying stepping onto the stage last night, everyone seemed to be having fun and no one seemed nervous. That made me feel more comfortable watching the show.” -Dylan Biggs
  • “One thing that surprised me about the concert was Jack and Tony, with broken appendages, playing their instruments.” -Simon North
  • Fall Concert“My favorite music piece would be Donny, Critty and Fluty's rap, ‘The Cardigan Way Today.’ It broke the boundaries set for an original concert. The song was created by the students, themselves, which made it unique. The song also included a lot of everyday life at Cardigan.” -Lucas Ding
  • “My favorite part of the performance was performing, “The Avengers.” Whenever I play in a concert, I get this feeling that is like Manna from Deep Survival, and an adrenaline boost.” -Connor Pollard
  • “I want to hear the hand bell music again because the handbell sounds were clear and rang for a really long time, it healed my mind and made me peaceful.” -Eric Lim
  • “I realized how talented many of my Cardigan brothers are.” -Bryce Terry
