Tonight, May 11th, the ASW high school is performing a spring concert which includes HS choir and HS string ensemble playing a variety of pieces for the audience.
According to Ms. B the HS choir teacher the concert will include a few modern pop songs like ‘Say Something,’ which features beautiful solos, according to Ms. B, and ‘Wake Me Up,’ with a rock band made up of grade 10 and 11 students and some surprise appearances.
The String Ensemble is performing works by Shostakovitch and J.S. Bach. The strings will also combine with a small group of singers to perform the Beatles song “Eleanor Rigby.”
Due to Covid 19 restrictions it wouldn’t be safe to have a large live audience in the theatre. So, the concert will only have a small live audience, and will perform “live-to-tape” meaning that it will be recorded later for public release.
