Chamber Music Recital - March 24, 7pm
Monday, March 23, 2015 6:25 AM


We have an upcoming evening of Chamber Music performed by Middle School Band and Orchestra students on March 24, 7pm.

Students have been working hard this quarter on playing chamber music (duets, trios, quartets, etc).  In addition to preparing the technical aspects of musical performance,, students are working on making informed musical & aesthetic decisions for their ensembles, e.g. phrasing, dynamics (how loud is loud?), cues, entrances, releases, etc. We have had several guest artists in to help uproar us for this unit - starting with the Stiletto Brass performance this fall, continuing with the Copper Street Brass, Julie Johnson and others. It’s a powerful unit and I look forward to this event every year.

Ensembles have been asked to dress nicely; the standard ensemble Black and White is not required for this performance.
