After a successful transition to in-person rehearsals and concerts in the fall, the Belmont Hill Music program has continued to thrive throughout the winter. The All-School Orchestra has immersed itself in various styles of music, evidenced by its diverse program for the upcoming winter concert. Currently, the Orchestra is working on an arrangement from the motion picture Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl as well as a few movements from “Ballet Parisien” by Jacques Offenbach.
Meanwhile, the Upper School Jazz Band has been rehearsing Mr. Fiori’s own arrangement of a fusion composition called “Thing Of Gold” by Michael League in addition to their rendition to the funk classic “Pick Up The Pieces.” The Middle School Jazz Band has been hard at work perfecting “Killer Joe” by Benny Golson.
Even amidst challenging academics and time-consuming sports, students participating in the Belmont Hill music program have dedicated themselves to growing and fostering their talents. Their shared love for music fuels their commitment to continue rehearsing even during the busiest weeks. We hope you appreciate their efforts by coming to the upcoming Winter Concert on Sunday, February 27th, in the Hamilton Chapel, and the Spring Coffee House, which is scheduled for Friday, April 8th, at 6:30 PM in the Kraft Theatre.
