May 4th Small Ensemble Concert

On Friday, May 4th at 7:30 p.m., the DHS Music Department will present a Small Ensemble Concert.

Every member of the DHS Orchestra will be participating in a small string ensemble, assigned by grade level. You will get a chance to meet together before making your selection on Monday, April 23. Seniors will choose first, Juniors second and so on. I have limited your possible choices to this list of pieces, most of which you already know:

Air on the G String by J.S. Bach
Autumn from the Four Seasons (1st mvmt) by Antonio Vivaldi
Beatles Forever
Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 (from the midterm) by J.S. Bach
Over the Rainbow by H. Arlen
Waltz from Sleeping Beauty by Tschaikovsky
Zoosters Breakout by Hans Zimmer

For the next two weeks, you will be rehearsing with your small ensemble during class time to prepare. Each of you will be responsible for the overall success of the group.
