Oak Terrace Students visit HPHS for Halloween Concert

For the last several years, students at Oak Terrace have enjoyed the annual Halloween Band Concert at Highland Park High School.  It has been a wonderful experience for the students to hear symphonic music performed live.  The high school students are dressed in costume and the theater is decorated with all kinds of fun and spooky props.  The director, Dr. Jim Hile, dresses as Dracula and not only entertains the kids with funny dialog, but he explains the musical selections and history of the pieces.  On some of the pieces, there is video, and on others, the audience is invited to dance or clap.  Students are amazed and engaged for the entire 45 minutes of the performance.  This year, our entire school attended and a good time was had by all!
