The Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Mr. Francis, followed with "Spanish Dance No. 5" by Enrique Granados; the Philharmonic Ensemble, conducted by Mr. Hough, closed with "The Pink Panther" by Henry Mancini and "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg.
The musicians also spoke to the audience about the works they were playing, and taught the boys in the audience a bit about each group and its instruments.
Music is integral to Saint David's program and our embrace of the classical ideal of balance in all things. Our boys are fortunate to be able to participate in a strong music program, and will be even more fortunate to play from the stage of our new performing arts center come September.
