A one, a two, a one, two, three!
It was last Tuesday night, June 9th that the grade 11 and 12 Instrumental Music students of East Northumberland Secondary School strutted their stuff in front of a very enthusiastic audience. The purpose of this mini music night, or La Soirée as it's called, is to give the students a chance to show exactly what they're made of, and did they ever.
These small ensembles played a variety of pieces and styles, from jazz to rock and even broadway. There were vocal pieces performed by Brennan Curtis and Brittany Marley and even a violin solo performed by Amanda O'Brien. A group of grade 12 students wowed the crowd with a drum ensemble composed by volunteer Jim Parnell, that will not soon be forgotten. The night finished with a blast from the past as both grades joined in playing "Classics, Classics, Classics!" , a medley of the best known classical pieces.
All of these promising musicians played well and made the night a rousing success. They would like to thank their teacher, Dan Walker, for a fantastic success and they hope for an even better La Soirée next year!
