The concert was wonderful! Thanks to all the hard work of the school music department, it showed! So many talented young people in Pembroke.
Highlights of concert included the PHS choruses and bands performing a tribute to the men and women of our Armed Forces and a guitar solo performance by Pembroke resident Mark Leighton. The evening with culminate with a work commissioned specifically for the 300th Anniversary concert entitled Mattakeesett, composed by local composer, Peter Glass. The work features the talents of a brass quintet, piano, and a large choir comprised of PHS singers, alumni, and community members. The words of the song were written by PHS students from the class of 2012. This commissioned project was made possible by a grant from the Pembroke Cultural Council.
For 300 years, Pembroke has been a vibrant and meaningful part of Massachusetts. Years ago, the town was known for it's plentiful timber and shipbuilding industry. Over time, Pembroke evolved with the needs of the community and today remains a special place you can be proud to call home or where you can enjoy a visit guaranteed to be filled with New England hospitality.
As Pembroke turns 300, there's no better time to discover the natural beauty of our town and all that we have to offer. From parades to our historic town fish-fry, there are all sorts of ways for people of all ages to have fun and help us celebrate turning three hundred together!
