Graduation Music & Choir Concert
Grier musicians worked over a series of two days to record their showcase pieces for graduation. Carolyn B. and Judy W. performed a piano duo while vocalists and choirs performed a number of songs. The Chamber Orchestra performed four pieces during their recording session on Thursday.
Choirs directed by Mrs. Ginger Reinhardt sang Heroes and Dreamers by Pinkzebra, follwed by Light of a Clear Blue Morning by Dolly Parton, arr. Johnson, and concluded with Just the Way You Are / Just a Dream from the movie Pitch Perfect.
Judy L. and Carolyn B. performed a piano duet of Scaramouche Movement III by Darius Milhand. Then, the orchestra opened with an An Irish Party in Third Class, as featured in the major film Titanic, followed by African-American spiritual Deep River, then a medley of songs from the musical Les Miserables, and concluded with the American folk song Ashokan Farewell.
Congratulations to our Grier musicians and vocalists for such fantastic performances, despite limited rehearsals and challenges of Covid-19. You really demonstrated handwork and commitment to your art and we appreciate the joy and emotion you have shared with us through your music.
