Stowe High School Ensemble Concert
The Stowe High School Music Department will perform for the third time on the stage at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center. The Arts Center is hosting this free admission community event as part of their educational outreach series which supports local students in the arts. Some 25 local students in grades 9 – 12, will again have the exciting opportunity to perform on a concert stage of a professional Arts Center that is state of the art.
This concert will consist of solos, duets and many various small ensembles playing chamber music. In this format students learn to start and end themselves without a conductor by listening and watching one another. The intimate nature of the Arts Center will lend itself well to this style of performance.
Students rehearse in their groups on their own with minimal help from the directors. They determine the leader of their ensemble and working together they prepare their pieces. Students often say this is their favorite concert of the year.
Some Programming choices will include:
· Several solos including Oboe, Piano, and Tuba to name a few
· Saxophone Ensemble playing “Raiders of the Lost Ark”
· Brass Ensemble – Theme from Star Trek
· Flute Ensembles
· Clarinet Ensembles
