The fall concert is an annual performance for Blair but this is only the second year that EMS has performed and the first year that TPMS has performed.

Blair's symphonic orchestra and symphonic band performed. The orchestra played "Incantations" by Richard Meyer, a Halloween themed song with an eerie violin section. They also played a piece called "Fright Night" composed by Brad Fiedel which is a mashup of different scary songs.

After all of the orchestra performances, all three orchestras came together and played as one massive orchestra. The bands did the same thing and came together to play as one band

Orchestra teacher Michelle Roberts was proud of her students and the other schools and was happy with how smoothly the performance went."Considering that there were probably over 300 students from three different schools, I thought it went very well," said Roberts.

The next concert for the Blair orchestra is in December for their winter performance.
