North Star High School band holds spring concert

North Star Band members performing concert.

The North Star High School band season is coming to a close and they demonstrated their talents again last week.


The band presented a spring concert in the school’s gymnasium last Thursday night with teacher Randy Lefrancois stating it was one of many performances for the band. They competed in Musicfest, and had other shows in Chicago and around the area. They presented concerts at Halloween and Christmas at the high school itself and also toured local public elementary schools.


“This band is really special to me,” Lefrancois said. “It has a family feel to me.”


Lefrancois said it was a special night for the graduating Grade 12 students and presented each of them with gifts. He praised them and their families for the four years of dedication they made to the band.


“I’m going to miss them a lot,” he said. “It’s a long commitment for four years. This is a very special night for the Grade 12s.”


The Grade 9, 10 and 11 students have also done a lot over the past year, Lefrancois told the crowd, and said he was proud of them also.


“They performed well,” he said. “This is one of the best groups I’ve had in the last few years.”


Eight songs were performed during the concert with individual artists also highlighted during the show. Lefrancois stated he loves what he does and enjoys coming to work every day to work with the band.


“I love this band,” he said.
