In the final concert of the year, the Upper School Symphony, Wind Ensemble and Camerata Strings were scheduled to play a wide array of pieces April 28.

The concert, which had not taken place at press time, was expected to feature two chamber pieces played by two groups within Symphony, including a percussion quartet that performed Blue Light by Eric Peel and an ensemble that played the first movement of the Piano Quintet No. 2 in A Major by Dvorak.

“The [Dvorak Piano Quintet] is a chamber music piece that is challenging, beautiful and very exciting,” Performing Arts teacher Mark Hilt said.

Camerata Strings and Wind Ensemble each had three pieces.

Wind ensemble was expected to play “terrific music from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and other very cool stuff,” Hilt said.

Symphony was expected to perform four movements of “The Return of Ulysses” for the second time since its premiere in 1949. In addition, the orchestra put on “Peter and the Wolf” by Prokofiev with narration from actress Sarah Martin ’06.

“She’s a hilarious girl, has a great voice, and is a fun storyteller,” Hilt said.
