 The Fall Concert hosted by the Trinity College School music department the evening of October 27th in the Dick and Jane LeVan Theatre was an early opportunity for students to gain performance experience and for audiences to hear some special arrangements and original works.

This is the earliest concert the School has produced yet, notes Ron Parker, music teacher and head of the fine arts department. The goal was to provide motivation for the student musicians and to give them the chance to hone their skills through performance.

The Trinity Wind Ensemble played three pieces: Fire Dance by David Shaffer, which gives our percussion section plenty of moments to shine; Frank Ticheli’s beautiful arrangement of the folk song Shenandoah; and the intense Torrents of Fire by Larry Neeck.

The vocal ensemble performed the Kings of Leon hit, Use Somebody, while Jazz@4 offered up two pieces: Flight of the Foo Birds, written by Neal Hefti and made famous by Count Basie; and Stevie Wonder’s funk classic, Superstition.

A highlight of the concert was the work of our Grade 12 music students, who were tasked with creating either an original work or a new arrangement. Six of these pieces were performed during the concert, offering styles ranging from classical to jazz to pop.

We want to thank the many students and parents who attended – the turnout was great! And we look forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming Christmas Charity Concert on Friday, December 2nd at 7:30 p.m.
