George Mason High School Spring Concert, GMHS Auditorium, 7124 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, Thursday, May 29, 7:30 p.m.
Take this advice from someone who has witnessed the recent years’ impressive evolution of the music program at Falls Church’s George Mason High School. Those in charge there have built it into one of the biggest, most popular activities at the school, and very accomplished, to boot. While competitive sports get most of the attention, it’s “cooperative sports,” such as this, that, it has been argued, provide more lasting positive impacts, including skills that last a lifetime. At any rate, do this for the selfish motive of its pure entertainment value. Admission is free, and the concert will reprise the efforts of the concert and symphonic bands, the jazz ensemble, sax quartet and percussion ensembles. Featured in solo performances will be Yusof Becker, Adam Gann, Seth Ensign, Morgan Moscati, Emily Perry, Nathan Ward and Jeff Williams, all graduating seniors.
