While many local residents waited for election results the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 8, a large crowd of enthusiastic parents, students and performers packed Boxley’s in North Bend for the fourth annual Twin Falls Middle School Café Night.

Music students from Matt Wenman’s band and choir classes at TFMS were encouraged to sign up for their moment in the spotlight. The event showcased 32 students who sang and played guitar, piano, flute, trumpet, tuba, clarinet and sax. Students performed Broadway hits, favorite pop songs, jazz classics and original compositions.

One parent commented, “This is my favorite event of the entire school year. It is just wonderful to see the kids enjoy music and feel proud sharing their talents with such an appreciative crowd.”  Organizers wish to thank the Boxley’s staff for accommodating the patrons and making it such a great experience.

Café Night was the start of an exciting schedule for the music program at Twin Falls. The TFMS Choir will have its first concert of the season on Thursday, Nov. 17 and the TFMS Band will follow a week later with their winter concert on Tuesday, Nov. 22.  Both concerts will be held in the Commons of Twin Falls Middle School at 7 p.m.  The concerts are free and the public is invited.
