Orchestra’s April 1st, 2021 ice cream concert was held in Gym A.

On Thursday, April 1 at 7 p.m., the Chamber and Concert Orchestras had their annual ice cream concert in Gym A.
Concert Orchestra performed “A Riverside Celebration” by Brian Balmages, “The Horizon” by Yukiko Nishimura and Music from BRAVE arranged by Robert Longfield.
Chamber Orchestra performed “Hoedown” (from Rodeo) by Copland and arranged by Stephen Bulla, “Greater Than” by Brian Balmages and “Incantations” by Richard Meyer.
Both orchestras were conducted by Joan Crull.
The following 16 seniors were recognized by Crull.
Concert Orchestra violins Trinity Carrasco, Kiley Crain, Ryan Moore and Taya Riedel; viola Jonathan Rupe; and cello Jarod Moore.
Chamber Orchestra violins Bryan Delarosa, Tom Drabkin, Marrissa Raynesford, Kai Shaffer, Ashley Vilaysing, Sydney Walker and Alexis White; violas Alisara Arial and Brendan Kershner; and bass Cami Moore.
“Although we honored each senior and their parents, we didn’t give out any awards at this concert,” Crull said. “We will give out several at the May 3 All City Strings Concert, though.”
Ice cream sandwiches were served to the small in-person audience. Due to COVID-19, there was also a live-streaming option for parents and guardians to watch from home. In-person attendees were required to wear a mask and social distance.
