Spring Concert (Part 1) Delights!

The first of our two spring concerts was held earlier this evening (Tuesday, 23 May) in the Wheatley Auditorium. The evening featured our Intermediate Orchestra (under the direction of Angela Luftig), our Concert Orchestra (under the direction of Stan Orlovsky), our Chorale (under the direction of Angela Luftig with Rick Leidenfrost-Wilson as accompanist), our Honors String Ensemble (under the direction of Angela Luftig) and our Symphonic Orchestra (under the direction of Stan Orlovsky).

The concert featured scores of student performers, with 16 of them being members of the Class of 2015. These graduating students have committed countless hours to our music program over the years. We are grateful for their participation and wish them a music-filled life as they graduate from Wheatley!

The graduating seniors include:

  • Ariana Arralde
  • Claire Baker
  • Laura D’Angelo
  • Lianna Golden
  • Sahaj Gulati
  • Rebecca Khorsandi
  • Jane Kim
  • Diana Lee
  • Lauren Levine
  • Allison Levy
  • Antonio Liparoto
  • Elizabeth Nolan
  • Kevin Yi
  • Sara Zulfiqar

Although there were so many wonderful aspects of this concert, I would be remiss if I were to not mention that Pastoral, one of the pieces performed by the Intermediate Orchestra, was composed by our very own 8th Grader, Elizabeth Yuen.
