Band, chorus and orchestra to perform in winter concert Dec. 17

COLONIAL AUDITORIUM — Band, chorus and orchestra will come together to present for the fourth and fifth grade parents of Colonial School.

This year’s winter concert will be performed on Dec. 17. Mr. Andrew Dolgon, the fourth and fifth grade band teacher, said this year the fifth graders will be performing two songs. One of them is “Simple Gifts.” The other is “Penguin Promenade.”

“I like it (chorus),” said Caroline Mingey (4M). “I think it’s good because we get to perform to people, and I think the teachers work really hard to help everyone, and it is fun singing in a group.”

Charlotte Duffy in 4C said, “‘Pineapple Samba’ is one of the songs we are doing for orchestra. And one, honestly, I think it is a very nice song because it has a lot of feelings, and it just makes me feel good.”

The instruments that orchestra will be playing include violin, viola, cello and bass. The instruments that the band will be playing include trumpet, trombone, clarinete, flute, saxophone, percussion, tuba and French horn.

“I think it’s fun because I like hearing singing and music and seeing if my friends are good at singing or not,” said Andrew Bier (4M).

Roman Katchoura (4M) is in band and orchestra. He said he is ”calm” about the concert.

Jackson Flaster, who is in 4M and in band, said he feels “okay” about the upcoming performance.

In the concert, the band will go first, then orchestra.

After that, the choruses will follow. The performance will end, the parents will go home or to work and the students will go back to class.
