This year’s Winter Concert was a brilliant evening with a little bit of everything. From the middle school jazz band to original compositions by the 10th grad- ers to some really exciting work by the juniors and seniors, there was some- thing for everyone. The string orchestra demonstrated great leaps forward as an ensemble with their performance of Vivaldi’s Allegro in D. Female vocalists
really shined: Malia Martin, Jaclyn Lee, Isabella Shin, Alyssa Mattocks, and Abby Arora, not to
mention the young women in “Voice.” The boys did not disappoint either—Nathan Canada’s
Beethoven performance on piano and Devon Conroy’s Villa-Lobos prelude for guitar impressed
the audience with their technical ability and expressive power.
The evening was capped with a performance of senior Alex Szotak’s performing a Marvin
Gaye/Michael Jackson medley that demanded an encore. It was a great night and we can’t wait
until the Spring Concert on May 17!
