Winter Concert to feature small groups

James Hur

Small groups of two to four students from Symphony, Wind Ensemble and Concert Strings will perform in the Winter Concert Feb. 23 at the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Monica.
Unlike most other concerts, this year’s Winter Concert will heavily feature smaller instrumental groups as opposed to larger ones. They will perform 19 pieces written by a variety of composers, including Bach and Beethoven.
“There is going to be a lot of music and a lot of variety,” conductor Mark Hilt said. “The students sound amazing.”
Many students have expressed appreciation for having the opportunity to work in small groups.
“I think it helps us grow more as musicians by sharing our knowledge and ideas with our peers,” percussionist Lisa He ’14 said.
The concert will begin at 5 p.m., and admission is free.
