Philomusica, the MHS extra-curricular alternative string ensemble, will premiere "The Sound of a Sound," the newly commissioned work by composer Richard Meyer on Monday, May 16 at the Performing Arts Center.
The novelty piece was completed in January, and will be performed at a concert featuring students in fourth and fifth grade.
The concert begins with fourth grade musicians from all District elementary schools, followed by the combined fifth grade ensemble from Glacier Creek and Kromrey middle schools. Philomusica will end the concert with a performance of the John Williams Trilogy and the new Meyer piece.
The seventh and eighth grade orchestras from Glacier Creek and Kromrey and the MHS Cardinal Orchestra will combine to perform a spring concert on Tuesday, May 17.
The Cardinal Orchestra and the eighth-graders, who have toured and performed at the Wisconsin State Capitol Building on May 11, will combine to play "The Sound of a Sound.'' Also on the program for the Cardinal Orchestra will be music by Sibelius (with student conductor Erin Stone), Matt Turner, and more.
Both concerts are free and begin at 7 p.m.
