SIDE BY SIDE CONCERT WITH W.O. SMITH FACULTY ORCHESTRA
Wednesday, 2/15, 6:45pm
Join us for our annual Side by Side Concert! Teachers are encouraged to perform alongside their students for a collaborative show.
This year's Side by Side Concert will also include a performance by the W.O. Smith Faculty Orchestra (WOSFO). In true side by side fashion, members from the student StringSmiths orchestra will join the WOSFO ranks to present Air from Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 and Sibelius' Finlandia.
The Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble is a group of 18 professional enlisted musicians whose repertoire ranges from traditional big band jazz, to bebop and swing, to modern jazz. At one of their concerts, you are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary composers as you would the classic sounds of Count Basie or Glenn Miller. Several of the band's members are also gifted composers and arrangers, and their compositions are often featured in concert.
