For those who didn’t get a chance to see the 2018 HS Great Works Concert on September 20th, here is the live steam video. If you only have time for one musical piece today, I’ve set the first link to start with the last ‘Great Work’ of the night, which was Hallelujah from “The Mount of Olives” by Beethoven. At one time it was a controversial piece, but the sheer verve of the music meant that it has transcended the centuries to become a rousing classic:
The focus of the Great Works Concert is developing collaboration between ISM HS music groups through working on a challenging work together. We also bring in professional musicians to work alongside our students to further stretch their capabilities and develop their musicianship. The whole concert can be watched from the start via this link:
The program is also attached here so you can follow along and celebrate the ISM students, staff and visiting guest artists who were performing. Congratulations again to the ISM Middle and High School Music Department for preparing the students so well for such a challenging concert.
The recording above is via the live stream. We also recorded a higher quality audio and will synch this with the video when editing. This copy will be place in the Parent Portal for download a copy for your records. Instructions about finding this video can be found here:
