The Panola College Concert and Jazz Band, both directed by Mike McGowan, held their last performance of the semester on May 5. The concert band performed songs such as The Trombone King, Yorkshire Ballad, and even musical highlights from the movie Brave. Student Jeremy Gressman premiered a song that he composed himself entitled Triumphant Reflection. Gressman even directed the band as they performed his song. After the Concert Band, the Jazz Ensemble took the center stage. The jazz band provided the audience with 9 different upbeat, lively tunes. Shawn Simonson delivered a vocal performance in conjunction with the song Fly Me to the Moon. The recital ended with a roaring, standing ovation from the audience.
