Saint David's Alive with Music

Our Winter Festival of Art and Music culminated with this morning's Winter Concert in a packed-to-capacity Hyman Hall.

The concert was phenomenal with energetic performances by our Philharmonic Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, and Chamber Singers.

The Philharmonic Ensemble performed the program they will play this Sunday at Carnegie Hall: Le Rejouissance, Concerto for Four Violins, Russian Sailors' Dance and the Mission: Impossible Theme. Two alumni, Alex B.'13 and Justin C. '13, joined us for the Vivaldi Concerto.

The Percussion Ensemble performed Qualeygo--a traditional rhythm from Ghana, and Morning Raga, featuring the Indian tablas played by one of our second graders.

The Chamber Singers performed a reprise of two songs from Lessons and Carols, and closed with a moving performance of U2's MLK featuring a sensational trumpet solo.

Kudos to all of our young musicians and their teachers!  Saint David's is truly alive with music!
