The conductor is wearing red, white & blue sweatbands and I think I spotted a Swatch! Kalamazoo Christian High School's Symphonic Band, Women’s Ensemble, and Chorale teamed up for their Spring concert on May 9 to remember the music of the "me" decade.

Clad in legwarmers and washed in neon, students kick off the 8:00 concert finale with Michael Jackson's "Bad" and smoothly segue into "Material Girl"- Madonna's signature song. A dozen more hits from the Cold war era follow that will make you remember big hair, Pac Man the the Rubik's Cube.

Songs you will hear include:

  • "Bad" Michael Jackson
  • "Material Girl" Madonna
  • "Don't Worry, Be Happy" Bobby McFerrin
