The Kilgore College Keyboard Orchestra presented its annual Keyboard Extravaganza Thursday, April 4, to more than 500 elementary and middle school students in three performances at Van Cliburn Auditorium on the Kilgore campus.
“The orchestra performed on Yamaha keyboards producing more than 600 sounds,” said Sandra Siler, director of the group. “The program was enhanced by laser lights, dramatic Power Point presentations, student skits, costume changes, audience participation and a surprise visit from Lady Gaga (impersonator).”
