RESCHEDULED — BMC Student String Ensembles Strut Their Stuff
The Music School presents a seasonal favorite Tuesday, Dec. 19, when its student string ensembles perform in a 7 pm concert at the BMC. All levels of student groups will perform, including the Tiger beginning ensemble class, the Music in the Schools first and second year students, and the BMC Youth string ensemble. Music by the youth ensembles, conducted by Heather Sommerlad, will include pieces by longtime BMC teacher David Tasgal, an original piece written by the students, and works by Thomas Tallis (Archbishop Parker’s Psalter Tune III) and Gustav Holst (the theme from Jupiter).
All are welcome: admission is free, although donations are welcome and support the scholarship fund.
