UAS Atoms Perform First Band Concert

Utica Academy of Science Invites Parents to First-Ever Band Concert

Thursday, February 16th, 2023: Utica Academy of Science 4th & 5th graders gave their first band performance! At the beginning of the year, students chose an instrument, and they have been working hard for the last five months receiving small group lessons and attending rehearsals after school. Learning how to not only play an instrument but also teaches responsibility, self-confidence, and cooperation. Atoms showcased their musical journey by playing full-group songs and each section separately. Family and friends were invited to attend the performance and enjoy a special breakfast with their musical scholars afterward. 

This is the first Utica Academy of Science Band in history. It consists of about 70 students playing flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, and percussion. We are very thankful for the supportive school and home environments allowing our students to gain confidence and independence through music instruction. Congratulations on a fantastic performance!
