On Tuesday, 9 December, the first of our two Winter Concerts took place in the Wheatley Auditorium. The concert program included the following groups: Intermediate Chorus, Chorale, Honors String Ensemble, Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Band. The various groups were under the direction of Angela Luftig, Stan Orlovsky and Peggy Ho, with Rick Leidenfrost-Wilson ably accompanying the vocal groups on the piano.
As described in the Program Notes, the pieces selected for the program were based on the theme of “Inspiration.” As part of their studies, students in the classes researched and designed websites relating to the historical perspective, composer, arts and music of the time period. The program notes were derived from the student research projects.
