Saint David's Alive With Music

This morning, in a highlight of our Winter Celebration of Art and Music,  I enjoyed the school's annual winter concert, featuring performances by the Saint David's Philharmonic Ensemble, the Percussion Ensemble, and the Chamber Singers.

The Ensemble, conducted by Phil Hough, played first and their repertoire included fine renditions of St. Anthony Chorale (Haydn), Overture to Lucio Silla (Mozart) and the Dance of the Tumblers from The Snow Maiden (Rimsky-Korsakov).

The Percussion Ensemble,  under the direction of John Francis, followed with We are Going To Be Friends (White Stripes) and Monkey Chant (Kotche).

Phyllis Clark's Chamber Singers rounded out the concert with Esta noche Bailare, Seid uns nun zweitenmal from The Magic Flute, Birth of St. Nicholas and Deo Gracias (Britten).

As always the boys performed with passion and great skill. They worked hard preparing for this concert, and it showed!  Congratulations to all of our young musicians and their teachers!
