The reviews are in, and the annual Halloween Band Bash held on October 26th was a ghoulishly fun night! A tradition dating back many years , the Ludlow Public Schools Band Students in Grades 6-12 have the opportunity to participate in this extravaganza held at Ludlow High School.

Students wore amazing costumes to channel their Halloween spirit, while the Band Directors were Minions! School administrators had the daunting task of selecting winning costumes in several categories such as Scariest Costume, Most Creative Costume, Best Group Costume and Funniest Costume (see photos below).  

Under the direction of Ms. Taryn Smith, the Baird Middle School Concert Band (6th Grade) performed, Freaky Fantasy by Mike Hannickel and Creepy Crawlies by Michael Story.

The Baird Middle School Symphonic Band (Grade 7-8), also under the direction of Ms. Taryn Smith, performed  Ghosts in the Graveyard by Scott Watson and Ancient Moon by Elliot Del Borgo, arranged  by Michael Brown.

The Ludlow High School Band, under the direction of Mr. Kevin McAvoy, performed "The Headless Horseman" by Timothy Broege, The Phantom of the Opera Medley by Andrew Lloyd Webber and arranged by Johnnie Vinson and House of Horrors (a medley of spooky music) arranged by Tom Wallace.

What a fantastic night! Congratulations to all the performers and many thanks to Mr. McAvoy and Ms. Smith for your continued dedication to bringing such inspiring and fun musical experiences to the Ludlow Public Schools.
