Congratulations to the student musicians in the District 99 Orchestra, and their conductor Ms. Jennifer Mullen, for presenting a fabulous Spring Concert.
Concert Orchestra's Scenes from Swan Lake, and the four-movement American Folk Symphony were an impressive start to the concert. Student Tim Edwards arranged the Gabriel Faure's Elegie into an elegant cello ensemble that featured his colleague, senior Samantha Young. The Haydn Cello Concerto in C Major was performed masterfully by senior soloist Allison Williams, and the Symphonic Orchestra premiered a new work commissioned in memory of Bob Lapen. Harpists Kristyn Krajewski and Caitlyn Renowden were also featured prominently on the program.
The combined finale, designed as a tribute to the Class of 2015, included orchestra alumni returning and performing "The Final Countdown."
Congratulations, one and all, for an inspiring evening of music!
