|Bessemer - May 14, 2009
Tuesday evening family and friends
were once again treated to an evening of Arts and Music. The
Bessemer Area Schools presented the Annual Band and Choir Concert,
directed by Mary Jo Mykkanen, and an Art Exhibit under the guidance
of Jennifer Werner.
The evening began with an Art Exhibit which displayed the
creativity and skills of many talented art students in the Bessemer
The evening progressed to the Music portion of the event. Once
again Mary Jo Mykkanen, demonstrated her musical talent and that of
her students. Mrs. Mykkanen has the ability to choose musical pieces
that make her 45 piece band sound as though there were a hundred
musicians playing. She also has trained her students to be fine
young musicians. Whether it be in a concert or a parade Bessemer
residents have much reason to be proud of their school bands.
