Students in the Upper School Symphony performed a concert for the elderly at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church Nov. 9.
This was the symphony’s first performance of the year, and the musicians wanted to get a sense of what it was like to perform together in front of others.
Percussionist William Chow ’17 said that the performance was a good learning experience to help him prepare for larger concerts the symphony would perform in the future and that it helped him gain a new sense of appraciation for music.
“When you’re rehearsing every day, you kind of lose sight of how impactful music can be for other people,” Chow said. “Once you perform for others, you kind of get that sense of what music can do for other people.”
