The stage was set on Tuesday, May 15 for three orchestras to perform at night.

Concert 8, chamber, and symphonic orchestra performed for parents and others who showed up for the event. Each orchestra played three pieces for the audience to enjoy. Conducted by orchestra teachers Julia Twaddell and Eric Renne, more than 100 students performed what they worked on for the last few months.

Concert 8 performed “A Postcard from Tuscany,” “Concerto in G” and “Firework.” Chamber performed “Cellos Ole,” three movements of “Carnival of the Animals (March of the Royal Lion, The Elephant, and Fossils)” and “Radioactive.” Symphonic performed “Maharaja,” “Night in Bald Mountain” and “The Magical World of Pixar.”

During the concert, two students from each orchestra were awarded a certificate for “Most Improved” and “Most Outstanding.” One person that was awarded was Paul Appler, a bass player for chamber orchestra.

“I was very surprised when I heard my name,” Paul said.
