Details About the Event
The High School Vocal Ensemble and STEM Symphonic Ensemble are presenting new arrangements of seven Friday Afternoons Project songs. This performance includes: Old Abram Brown by Benjamin Britten Baiskeli by Gwyneth Herbert This Is The Bird by Jonathan Dove Winter Time by Nico Muhly From A Railway Carriage by Nico Muhly Manin' Neighba by Jason Yarde Nicky Tams by Sally Beamish The singers have had great fun and have progressed a lot by concentrating on this repertoire in 2017. The ensemble (woodwind, brass, strings and rhythm section) of high school and middle school students have started working on the new arrangements by Richard Clarke (STEM School Music Teacher). Rehearsals and performance includes a precisely tailored and flexible live track operated on Ableton Live DAW and will be conducted by a High School student! We plan to bring this concert to our adjoined Elementary School in a May Assembly. They will learn some of the easier songs/choruses with their teacher, Paul Waskiewicz, to ensure engagement at this event. We hope to roll this project out each year involving the whole school and new pieces in different combinations.
