Soirée Musicale

June 30, 2016

The final music concert of the year was the Soirée Musicale on a hot and steamy June evening. It was a fantastic mix of styles and performers with a little bit of everything. There were several brilliant close harmony groups along with a rocking swing band. The Sinfonia, Wind Band and Highly Strung gave strong instrumental performances. The concert included the culmination of the Vivaldi Four Seasons project with ‘Summer’ played superbly by Natalie Tsang (LV), Rosa Picard (LV) and Chiara Chung-Halpern (VII) accompanied by Summer Strings. The Middle School Choir gave a tribute to Bowie and Cantamus commemorated the death of Shakespeare with three lovely settings of his texts including one by our Composer-in-Residence, Bernard Hughes. The wonderful night of musical performances finished with a fantastic Lion King medley performed by the Junior Choir.
