Last Night, the Upper School held its annual winter concert. Although the mainstay of the concert remains music that celebrates the winter holidays, concert director David Southerland paid homage to summer and fall holidays as well, adding a handful of songs for Independence Day and Halloween. The seventh and eighth grade choir joined the Upper School voices for the opening movement of Carmina Burana.
Transitioning into more traditional holiday fare, the Gillharmonics performed choral adaptations of a piano prelude by Chopin and a ballet by Tchaikovsky, and the Knight Brigade and Knightingales sung some songs of the season. The Concert Choir closed out the evening with a Christmas motet from 1609, followed by some more recent holiday offerings.
The photo gallery of last night’s winter concerts and all of the concerts from the season are posted on KnightSite.
