The Secondary Music Department presented its 6th Annual Classical Winter Concert recently. The concert started with the Viva Voce groups who presented a range of songs directed by Ms Ogusu and assisted by Tinkara. The songs were different in terms of style and language. The accompaniments ranged from piano to percussion and we even had a small ROCK band.
The second part of the concert featured the ISH Orchestra, directed by Mr Jones and Dr Balasu, and selected soloists. The orchestral pieces included pieces by Beethoven and Rossini as well as new pieces. The soloists included Esther and Bhavika singing two contrasting pieces by Adele and Verdi, Julie playing a flute concertino and Justin playing a dazzling Chopin piano piece.
Robyn and Elena performed a flute duet by Stamitz. A centrepiece of the concert was the group of solos by Ella on the harp, Rose playing the Guzheng and Peach playing the Khim. The finale was the seasonal melody Silver Bells, where the ISH Orchestra accompanied a group of dancers choreographed by Ms McNie.
It was a tremendous concert that was made possible by the efforts of the ISH Orchestra, the dancers, the soloists, Mrs Hennop, Ms Ogusu and Mr Jones.
