White delivers captivating, enthralling sequel with A Song Unheard

Captivating, enthralling, fantastic. Those are just a few words I would use to describe A Song Unheard, the second novel in the Shadows over England series. I have read several novels by Roseanna M. White through the years and truly enjoyed them all. However, I think she really has outdone herself with her most recent series. I read A Name Unknown when it was released last year and adored it. So I was highly anticipating reading the second novel when it was released earlier this month. White did not disappoint. Once again, she crafts an intricate tale about characters facing harrowing circumstances and finding their faith along the way. The characters of Willa and Lukas were fleshed out wonderfully and a joy to read about. I thoroughly enjoy the World War I setting. There are so many books set in the World War II time frame, but so few that touch on the first Great War. White does a wonderful job of adding plenty of details about the time period without it feeling like an info dump. This series is a definite must-read for fans of historical fiction or Christian fiction. You won’t regret it. About the Book Title: A Song Unheard Author: Roseanna M. White Genre: Christian Historical Fiction Release Date: January 2, 2018 Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the...

Ark City High School bands to perform Winter Concert on Jan. 23 at ACHS

The Arkansas City High School bands will present their annual Winter Concert at 7 p.m. Jan. 23 in the ACHS auditorium, located at 1200 W. Radio Lane. The concert is free and open to the public. The ensembles are under the direction of Chris VanGilder and Hans Judd. The Jazz Band will open the concert with a diverse set that includes “Sticks,” by Cannonball Adderley; “One Mint Julep,” a Ray Charles hit; “Watermelon Man,” by Herbie Hancock; and “Hey Pachuco,” a hit by Royal Crown Revue, known for its use in the movie “The Mask.” Next on the program are two percussion ensemble pieces, “Viva Percussion” and “Batucada Blues,” both light-hearted, Latin jazz-inspired works. The Concert Band will close the program with a selection of marches: “March, Opus 99,” by Prokofiev; “Valdres,” by Norwegian composer Johannes Hannsen; two traditional American marches — “Them Basses,” by G.H. Huffine, and “The Thunder,” by Sousa; the Third Movement of Gustav Holst’s “First Suite for Band.” “Although we have chosen to do a set of all marches,” VanGilder said, “you will find that they are each unique and offer a variety of musical ideas.” This information was provided by Arkansas City High School Band Director Chris VanGilder.
