Senior Alex Hagerman plays her contest solo, "Kol Nidrei" by Max Bruch, during this year's Ice Cream Concert. Hagerman is one of five seniors in Orchestra.

The Orchestra’s annual Ice Cream Concert took place at 7 p.m. on April 1 in the cafeteria. Seniors Isabelle Braun, Alex Hagerman, Zoe A. Martin, Kayli Potter and Carl Rorstrom were recognized for their work in the Orchestra program.

The large group performed “Prelude” by Edvard Grieg, “Waterloo Station” by Alan Lee Silva, “Danny Rocks” by Bob Phillips, and “Libertango” by Astor Piazzol.

Contest solos and ensembles were also presented at the concert. The Maroon Quartet (freshman Sidney Wittkorn, cello; sophomore Ashley Vilaysing, violin; junior Cely Hutchinson, violin; and junior Michaela Austin, viola) played “Concerto in D Minor” by Vivaldi.

The Gold Quartet (Hagerman, violin; sophomore Tom Drabkin, violin; sophomore Alisara Arial, viola; and Rorstrom, cello) performed “Allegro Con Spirito (Op. 2 #6)” by Boccherini.

Hagerman soloed in “Kol Nidrei” by Bruch, and Rorstrom soloed in “Konzert von Luigi Boccherini” by Boccherini.

“I was proud of them,” Orchestra director Joan Crull said. “I always say that a performance is worth five practices. This is good so people can see what we still need to work on.”

The orchestra waits for their director, Joan Crull, to begin the concert. The students played four songs, recognized seniors and allowed for special small groups to show their contest pieces off.
