Morning Concert for Lower School

Yesterday the Lower School boys attended a morning concert given by the First Orchestra and Saint David's Philharmonic Ensemble. 

The First Orchestra are our youngest musicians (Grades 1-3). The boys, under the direction of Mrs. Francis, have been rehearsing every week, and learning the skills of playing in a group. 

They played the theme from Rossini's William Tell and a piece called Rock On by Steve Hommel.

The Philharmonic Ensemble (Grades 3-8), directed by Mr. Hough, followed with Bransle de la Torche by Praetorius, Handel's La Rejouissance, and Slavonic Dance by Anontin Dvorak. The audience was delighted.

This concert enables our two orchestras to share the beauty of music with Saint David's younger boys and demonstrates the opportunities in music and performance available at our school, which has a long celebrated musical tradition.
