The MHS orchestra will present the annual Mike Dewey Memorial Concerto Showcase on March 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center.
The Mike Dewey Concerto-Aria Concert honors the memory of Mike Dewey, an orchestra teacher at MHS from 1982 to 2000. Dewey was known as a dedicated orchestra teacher who adored his students and loved teaching. Current MHS orchestra teacher Steve Kurr fondly remembers Dewey's "wonderful sense of humor, Star Wars, and jovial nature.''
The concert showcases the Concerto-Aria winning performances with the MHS symphony orchestra, under the direction of Kurr. Also joining the MHS symphony will be the MHS sinfonia, its newest curricular orchestra, performing several works, including Vivaldi's "Spring" with violinist Nathan Giglierano.
The concert is free and open to the public.
