Students rehearse for their upcoming spring concert during class.

Orchestra will hold its annual spring show on May 15 in the auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.

The theme is “Music of the Heart.” Orchestra will perform songs such as “When She Loved Me” from Toy Story 2, “See You Again” and “The Shape of You.” Chamber Orchestra will be performing most of the soundtrack to “West Side Story.”

“It’s our last concert of the year, so I think of it as a way for us to celebrate everything that happened throughout the year and to say goodbye to our seniors,” orchestra director Matthew Cautivar said.

Junior Mirabella Herrera said the spring concert is different from previous concerts and UIL because it’s more relaxing. Herrera is also looking forward to dressing out of the traditional black dress for performances.

“I’m pretty excited because it’s not like classical music like UIL, it’s just random stuff from pop songs or movies,” Herrera said. “It’s just fun to play because if you like the movie, then you’re super into it.”

The show will also include a senior tribute with the song “See You Again.”

I’m looking forward to everyone coming together one last time to play music for our friends and family before we leave for the summer,” Cautivar said. “It’s kind of the opposite of homecoming.  I hope the students enjoy playing the music and take a moment to cherish the memories as they make them.”
