How large is the Large Ensembles Concert? Very.
Almost 300 students took to the Farquhar Auditorium stage at the University of Victoria on Wednesday night for the annual event. Performances from the Senior Choir, Grade 9, 10 and Senior Concert Bands, the Senior String Orchestra, and the Senior Orchestra made for a memorable evening.
Each piece was lovingly crafted and practiced over the last few months under the direction of Peter Butterfield (choirs), John Reid (concert bands) and Donna Williams (orchestras). Below, Donna Williams conducts this medley of tunes that you are sure to hear in the musical, Guys and Dolls, which debuts February 29.
Stay tuned for more coverage of this amazing concert!
