The Wednesday evening concert marks the last formal music event of the year.
The music program at EGHS was on display Wednesday evening, in the one concert of the year that combines all the formal music course offerings - band, orchestra, jazz band, chorus - with a few solo or ensemble pieces as well as a contemporary music offering or two. Brenden Carniaux directed the orchestra, bands and string ensemble. Jan Briedenbach directed the choral offerings. Highlights of the show included the chorus’s Sweeney Todd medley, Jake Torrey and Ellery Bonham’s cover of John Mayer’s Stop This Train, and the Avenger Band’s exciting performance of Gustav Holst’s Mars. Those and other selections can be seen in the video posted with this story.
