2021 Winter Concert

Tuesday evening this week was the opportunity for our Intermediate Music Ensembles and a range of Middle School Soloists to perform for parents, friends and staff. The concert began with the Concert Band, directed by Mr Henry and Mr Dimitrievski, with a retro experience – the score to ‘Back to the Future’. Mr Malyusz then directed the Brass Ensemble performing the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ from Handel’s Messiah, and an arrangement of the American Traditional ‘Just a Closer Walk’. Mr Zhang arranged themes from ‘Pokemon’ game music for the Intermediate Strings and these were performed to the backdrop of a game displayed on big screen! The Serenata, under the direction of Ms Morgan, beautifully performed a movement from Elgar’s ‘String Serenade’ and a ‘Tambourin’ by French Baroque composer Jean-Phillip Rameau.

Soloists for the evening were: Pianist Elton Huang performing the c# minor Nocturne by Chopin; Cellist Lucas Fan, the Scherzo from Elgar’s Cello Concerto; Clarinetist Toby Ji performing a movement from a Clarinet Concerto by Stamitz; Carlo Furlan on French Horn performing the Rondo from Mozart’s Horn Concerto KV371; and Andy Lin, ‘Requiebros’ by Spanish Composer Gassado. My thanks to Mr Kinda for his work accompanying these performances.

The evening was rounded out with a combined item performed by the Concert Band, Intermediate Strings and Serenata: Into the Clouds by R.L Saucedo.
