Saturday, November 18, 2017

The Sinfonietta Orchestra, under the baton of Conductor John Eells, kicks off its 2017-18 Season at the Fall Classic Concert!

Works to be performed include: Haydn Symphony No. 104 ("London Symphony"), Copland Music from "Our Town," Beethoven Overture to "Consecration of the House," and Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor, Mvt. I with Joey Zhu, soloist.

The Sinfonietta Orchestra, conducted by John Eells, is an advanced level orchestra for middle and high school students. Sinfonietta students receive intensive training in preparation for membership in the ECYS Senior Symphony. The orchestra performs original music chiefly from the classical period repertoire. 

The first half of each rehearsal is divided into sectionals. Mr. Eells conducts the full string section, Coach Debra Gardner works with the woodwinds, and Coach Richard Bice works with the brass. The second half of each rehearsal is devoted to full orchestra with Mr. Eells.
