"It's really exciting to them, especially right now we're not having a lot of in person concerts and things like that," said Ryan Hennessy, Ben Steele Middle School Orchestra director. "So, being able to come out and play, it's always fun and play in a different area, different venue. Performing live is always good. Gives them that opportunity of expression, get their nerves rolling. But performing live is always a positive thing. Brings up their confidence."

The students took a break last year because of COVID, but this is the show's fifth year and second year at the mall.
