Two-hundred musicians took the stage for a fundraising Halloween concert featuring the West High and Northwest Junior High orchestras on Oct. 26 in the Arganbright Auditorium. Over $2,000 was raised with the help of private donations and Hurts Donut Co., which provided specialty pumpkin spice and apple cider donuts after the show.  All donations were directed to fund $10,000 worth of uniforms for the concert and symphony orchestras, which will be used for symphony’s trip to the National Orchestra Festival in Georgia this coming March.
