Music is ‘key’ to the soul
March is National Music in Our Schools Month and the Bridgeport Bulldogs Music Department knew just what to do for that. They held their annual Supper and Sounds fundraiser on Tuesday evening, March 3rd, to raise money for choir costumes and props, travel expenses for competitions, instruments and repairs. Music parents donated money and all the items needed for the feast; Ron Hoffman smoked up pulled pork for supper while Sharon Hoffman cooked the funeral potatoes into a tasty side dish. The Hoffman are BPS Choral Music Director Michaela Babic’s parents. Desserts were made by students and families, and parent volunteers served up the bounty to the hungry supporters.
After the feast, folks were treated to a vocal and instrumental concert in the auditorium, directed by Mr. Doug Babic. Junior High Band started off the festivities in the theme of `music from movies’ and played songs from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Hunger Games, which featured the flute section of Daisy Garner, Delaney Pohl, Danica Mullins, Emilie Miller and Madison Ribble, and finally, the theme song from Ghostbusters with Grace Dean on Trap Set and the audience singing in the answer to “Who ya gonna call”? Audience members younger than about thirty-five years old were heavily coached in their response by those who were alive during the summer of 1984.
