Fall Concert – Preview

Dear Parents of Instrumental Music Students and my dear Campolindo Colleagues,

I invite you all to attend our Fall Concert, which will take place a week from Thursday. Since our Pops Concert earlier this year, we have turned to music of a more serious nature for deeper study. You will hear a wide variety of styles from several of our performing groups – all of it engaging and all of it demonstrating the commitment to music that our students make each day.

You will hear our JV Jazz group in their debut performance. They’ve been working hard to learn the unique language of jazz and I’m sure you’ll be as delighted as I am to hear them.

You will hear the Concert Band in their first performance of the year playing a really fun march and a wonderfully descriptive piece called The Red Balloon.

You will hear two chamber groups—strings and winds—performing staples of the chamber music repertoire.

You will hear the Orchestra play a piece for strings alone by the German master, Paul Hindemith, followed by a work for full orchestra, an overture, written by a young Gioachino Rossini, long before he wrote his famous opera, The Barber of Seville.

You will hear the Symphonic Band play classic wind band repertoire and some newer pieces, one of which recently won First Prize in the Frank Ticheli Composition Contest.

You will then hear the grand finale, as the Concert Band and Symphonic Band combine forces (yes, that’s 92 students on stage) to present Scenes of Wonder, a visit to three of the world’s interesting places.

The young musicians in our lives will be on full display at Fall Concert 2015. I hope you’ll all be there to witness what they can do. They amaze me each day.

Mr J

Parent Music Boosters Info

Music Boosters play an integral role in enriching the music education of our students, and in building a music-supportive community within and beyond the walls of Campolindo. Although the Board positions are filled for the current year, we often need volunteers for specific events, such as helping the hospitality hosts manage the post-concert receptions, the Pops Potluck in October, finishing touches for the fantastic jazz dinner dance in February, and so on. We are also hoping this year to make it easier for students and families to coordinate attending together (if they so wish) some of the concerts students attend for the purposes of completing performance reviews. Volunteering as you are able with specific events, and becoming a Board member in the future, are great ways to get more familiar with Campolindo, its student musicians, and their parents and families. If you have questions or are interested in getting involved, please contact Stacy Giglio, President, at TheGiglioFamily@comcast.net.
