Upper School Delights with Winter Concerts

Upper School musicians kicked off the winter season in style with a series of concerts which showcased the melodic talent ringing from every BB&N classroom.

The Orchestra opened the evening in the theater performing three pieces: Gymnopédie No. 3 by Erik Satie, the Allegro Vivace symphony by Georges Bizet, and selections from Carmen Suite No. 1 and Carmen by Georges Bizet.

The impressive show included several students filling featured roles; just a few of the many wonderful performances included Daniel Kyte-Zable ’23 arranging and conducting the first piece, and Amphitrite Ma ’23 as lead vocalist and harpist in the closing pieces.

The evening then moved to the Chorale room, where four different jazz ensembles took the night in a groovier direction. Student interpretations of Duke Ellington, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Dave Brubeck, and many more left the audience tapping their feet and swaying to the music long after departing the show.
