In-person concerts returned in impressive fashion on Oct. 7 as Kaleidoscope '21 took place in front of an enthusiastic audience at Elmwood Park High School.

The event, featuring performances by EPHS Choirs and the Marching Tigers, kicked off the 2021-22 concert season.

It also marked the first time a public performance has been held in the high school auditorium since the original COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020.

The concert began with vocal performances by the EPHS Chorale, Concert Choir, Swing Choir and Combined Choirs, all under the direction of Mr. Grant McEachern.

The EPHS Marching Tigers, under the direction of Mr. Kyle Rhoades, then took the stage. The band appeared in uniform and were led by drum major Kamil Musial.
