08-12_concert_1Though the weather outside was frightful, the music in King Theatre delighted audiences as Milton presented the much-anticipated Winter Concerts.

On Friday, December 12, Milton’s Chamber Singers kicked off the night with back-to-back pieces by brother and sister, Felix Mendelssohn and Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel. Later in the evening, Milton’s full orchestra introduced its rendition of lesser-known composers such as Emma Lou Diemer, Jaromir Wienberger and Georges Bizet, and performed The Sea’s Swallow, a piece written by Milton Academy senior Jonah Francese.

On Sunday, December 14, the Chamber Orchestra performed Johann Hummel—featuring senior soloist Chris Cote on trumpet—Ralph Vaughan Williams, Bela Bartok and Juventino Rosas. Following a brief intermission, Milton’s Glee Club took the audience on a journey around the world with an arrangement of international folk songs.
