Musical Wonderland

Winter is a musical wonderland at Saint David's. We are in the midst of our annual Winter Festival of Art and Music, and Wednesday was our always anticipated Winter Concert.

The performances by the Percussion Ensemble (John Francis, Director), the Chamber Singers (Phyllis Clark, Director) and the Philharmonic Ensemble (Philip Hough, Director) were outstanding.

Among the wonderful pieces we heard were Mozart's Minuet from Don Giovanni, the 16th century anonymous song Non la devemos dormir, and Tchaikovsky's Finale from Symphony No. 2, Op. 17 "Little Russian."

I am so impressed with the time and effort these boys devote to their love of music throughout the school year, and the quality of these concerts.  Congratulations to Music Chair Jeff Moore, Mr. Hough, Mr. Francis, Mrs. Clark and all of our young musicians!
