The show started out with the entire cast performing “Snow Business,” a crowd favorite. It continued on with the Junior Dance Company performing their dances before moving on to a more modern hip-hop style dance. The Madrigals appeared on stage in their Rennasissance attire and performed their popular songs such as “Ding-a-Ding-a-Ding.”

Color Guard then performed “Happiest Christmas Tree.” Both Junior and Senior Dance Companies also came out and performed some of their popular songs such as “Hot Choclate,” “The Nutcracker,” “Marshmallow World,” “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree,” and “Jingle Bells.”

The show ended with the entire cast coming together to sing “Feliz Navidad,” another crowd-favorite, under the conducting of band director David Matchim. It was a full house for both of the shows.

On the evenings of December 3 and 4, Centennial’s music and art groups performed their annual Winter Spectacular. With both shows starting at 7 pm, the full ensemble transformed the school auditorium into a winter wonderland.

The Winter Spectacular involved various fine arts groups showcasing their musical talents. The show featured performances from Madrigals, the orchestra, Musical Theatre, Drill Team, Junior and Senior Dance Company, Color Guard, and Jazz Band.

The fun-filled show started with all performing groups singing the crowd favorite “Snow Business.” After the song, the stage lights dimmed down and the Madrigals appeared on stage in their Renaissance attire, performing “Deck the Halls.” Other songs they performed were “Here We Come a-Caroling,” “Carol, Singers Carol,” and “Ding-a-Ding-a-Ding”.

After the Madrigals’ first number, members from the orchestra tuned their instruments to “Sleigh Ride”. While singing on stage, Musical Theatre also danced to “Winter Wonderland,” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” and “Here Comes Santa Claus.”

Aside from singing, both Junior and Senior Dance Company took the stage as they danced to songs such as “Frosty the Snowman,” “Mele Kalikimaka,” “Snow,” and “The Nutcracker Suite”.

Color Guard twirled their flags to “Somewhere in My Memory” from the family Christmas movie, Home Alone. Under the conducting of band director David Matchim, Jazz Band played “Feliz Navidad” and they were joined by all performing groups as they danced and sang, closing the night.

The show was filled with an audience packed from the front of the auditorium to the back. The Winter Spectacular was also performed for 8th graders from different middle schools during the school day on December 4. It truly was a spectacular show.

Centennial held its annual Back to School Night for parents on Thursday, August 27. Centennial’s Marching Band, Drill Team, and Color Guard kicked the night off by performing a multitude of songs ranging from Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” to The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”

After the performance, parents headed inside to the main hallway for a gallery walk. The Centennial Boosters, PTSA, and many of Centennial’s clubs had booths set up to inform the parents of their respective organizations.

Following the gallery walk, parents went to a Naviance Open House, learned about the Boosters and PTSA, and met the administration. Parents then traveled the school, going to their kids’ classes period by period. There they met the teachers and learned about the basics of each subject.
