Band Concert at Dixon Brought Out Principal Iron Man

Last night the Dixon Middle Concert and Jazz Bands performed for a full house in the school Gymnasium to the delight of all who attended. Starting with the 6th grade Concert Band, Gary E. Alsup conducted a notable series of music that even included songs to honor America's history as well as some boogie.

When the 7th grade Concert Band took center stage, the crowd was thrilled with the solos as well as the overall talent of the entire group. There was even a series saluting our military attendees. Standing ovations were the norm for much of the evening as this talented group of kids showed off the hard work they have put in throughout the year.

Then the Jazz Band took to the stage and played a series ranging from Carl Strommen through Evil Ways made popular by Carlos Santana. During this very entertaining period, the Jazz Band began an intro into the song "Iron Man" which brought out Principal James Strope dressed as Iron Man dancing to the rhythms before "flying off" out of the gym.

Congratulations to all who put on this fantastic evening of musical entertainment and kudos to the Dixon bands who have put in so much time and effort to make it all possible.
