Whether you're on your way to the library or stopping by City Hall, chances are you're driving by St. John Vianney School, located in the heart of Brookfield. This blog will provide insight into life and education at SJV, a 4K-8 educational anchor in Brookfield since 1957.
On Tuesday, October 30, 2007 at 7:00 pm, the Saint John Vianney and St. Dominic's Strings and Band Orchestras will present the first annual Fall Fest. This concert will highlight Halloween songs and college fight songs. Recognizing the need for the advanced students to perform more often and, learning of other orchestras that give Halloween concerts, strings and band instructors Maria Gesiorek and Joan Lueneburg began considering a fall performance. After learning St. John Vianney music teacher Jared Ziegler was teaching college fight songs to some of the same students, their idea of a Halloween-Football Fan themed concert resulted in the combined schools' First Fall Fest. Students will perform in Halloween costumes.
While any performance carries a responsibility to be prepared, a Halloween themed concert will put students at ease as they show off their costumes before the big day and perform in a family friendly environment. The Strings, as well as the combined Bands (5-8th), will be playing three Halloween songs, the Jazz band one. Added to the mix will be Jared Ziegler performing on tuba, an instrument he played in high school in addition to saxophone. He will be joining the students in the Star Spangled Banner song, along with the fight songs from Michigan, Ohio, Northwestern and Wisconsin universities.
