Answer: very few, if any, and the youngsters took full advantage last month, playing their little hearts out on the South Terrace of the structure that Henry and Arabella called ‘home.’
Under the skilled hand of Conductor Rob Folsom, the Beginning Orchestra played Spring from the 80s film entitled ‘The Four Seasons,’ closing with a sampling from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.’
The Intermediate Orchestra stayed on the ‘Pirates’ theme ship before two selections from ‘Les Miserables’ led to their finale, aptly performed and entitled The Final Countdown.
The Chamber Orchestra led off with Alice In Wonderland before turns at ‘The Godfather,’ ‘The Prayer’ for violin, cello and string orchestra (with solos by Water Lam and Anna Gee), My Heart Will Go On and more from ‘Pirates.’ And all was performed well!
