On November 7th, Mesa Middle School hosted its annual Patriotic Celebration. The students involved participated as members of choir, band, orchestra, drama, and humanities classes, and represented Mesa as the school connected with its community to honor United States Veterans.
The event, which began as a Music Department concert to honor the 200th Anniversary of "The Star Spangled Banner," has expanded to connect Mesa students from several disciplines, and has played host to several highly regarded groups. This year, Mesa was proud to welcome Stellar Brass, from the United States Air Force Academy, led by Master Sargeant Jeremy L. Grant.
Highlights from the evening include the Presentation of Colors by a local Honor Guard during the performance of the Star Spangled Banner, a combined Band, Orchestra, and Choral piece, the headline performance from Stellar Brass; and a full house of family and community members who - through music - celebrated the extraordinary service of America's Veterans.
