Middle and Upper School Instrumental Ensembles Prepare for Winter Concert
Using a number of innovative and creative PPE solutions to sustain and support them throughout their practices, symphonic and contemporary ensembles are preparing for an upcoming winter concert. The student musicians are persevering and putting forth profound musical efforts to share a beautiful art form throughout the pandemic with the school community amid the backdrop of transparent heavy vinyl barriers, employing social distancing, and, for woodwinds and brass, using bell covers to limit particulates in the air. In addition, two air purifiers in the front of the room run continuously. Instrumental music teacher John Rising said he and fine and performing arts department chair Tina Kuhlman are working out logistics to determine a time for the upcoming performance, as well as how it will be delivered.
