09-12_concert_1On Friday, December 11, the Chamber Singers and full orchestra performed in the first of two Winter Concert events. The Chamber Singers began with three pieces from the English and Spanish Renaissance and two modern day spirituals. The orchestra then performed five selections, including a quirky Polka, from “The Age of Gold” by Soviet composer Dimitri Shostakovich. As a finale, Kevin Huang (I) conducted the strings of the orchestra in the Palladio by Karl Jenkins.

The second Winter Concert, on Sunday, December 13, opened with two Vivaldi concerti. The first for four violins featured Class I students Uma Venkatraman, Lily Choi, Arya Palakurthi and Andrew Park. The second concerto for two flutes featured Class I students Kate Murray and Corina Ramirez. The Chamber Orchestra concluded the first half of the concert with works by French masters Eric Satie and Georges Bizet. Closing the performance was the Academy’s Glee Club singing music from Mozart, Salieri, Haydn, Diemer, and one piece by the School’s former choral director Scott Tucker.  

A silent auction also took place during both performances to raise money for the Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Singers’ spring break concert tour to Spain.
