Some of the most memorable events of every school year are the music concerts because they are evenings filled with performances from the many talented students and staff at MacDuffie. This year was no exception: the 2016 Spring Music Concert featured 20 performances, all of which were highly enjoyable and entertaining.

The event took place in the Little Theater and was put together by music teacher Jonathan Harvey, who is filling in for Asia Meirovich while she is away on maternity leave for the remainder of the academic year. With the help of an amazing technical crew and everyone who performed in the show, Harvey was able to create a very memorable evening.
