"Life is fraughtless ... when you're thoughtless."


Shelby's Band in Concert

Last night the Liberty High School Band (led by Ms. Genice Matzke) hosted a "Future Lancers Concert".  Since Timberview Middle School is right next door to Liberty, the vast majority of Timberwolves migrate across the parking lot to LHS after their eighth grade year.

The genius of the TMS-LHS program (singular) is that Scott Singmaster at TMS and Genice Matzke at LHS have formed a true "Grade 6-12" music program.  Given the extraordinary quality of instruction at both schools, and the accolades afforded to the TMS program recently (e.g., playing an hour-long concert at the Broadmoor Hotel for the Colorado Music Educators Association's annual conference last month), these kids are doing some amazing things:

("Music for Silent Film", commissioned especially for this 8th Grade Concert Band by Prof. Ken Singleton of the Univ. of Northern Colorado [GO BEARS!], and conducted by Mr. Josh Prewett.)

("Oxford Pointe Overture" by Huckaby, with the combined TMS 8th Grade Concert Band and the LHS Wind Ensemble -- over 150 teenagers making an amazing sound! -- conducted by Ms. Genice Matzke.)

These kids all have a bright future ahead of them!
