Craig sisters pay tribute to late mother at spring concert

The audience that filled the Moffat County High School auditorium sat silent Thursday night as sisters Rebekah, Christa and Kaitlen Bird began to play. Up until this point in the spring band concert, the combined voices of brass, strings, drums and woodwinds reverberated through the auditorium as Craig Middle School and MCHS band members performed rousing marches and slower, deeper pieces. But as the trio’s clear notes of trombone and French Horn alone blended together in a rendition of “Three Precious Gifts,” the mood in the auditorium changed. Although about 600 people filled the auditorium that night, Christa, 13, Rebekah, 14, and Kaitlen, 18, dedicated their music to one person: their late mother, Sherry Bird.
