Fossil Ridge High School’s Orchestra program held their first concert of the year on Wednesday, October 3 at 7:00 p.m. All three levels performed in the Performing Arts Center. Sinfonietta Orchestra started the concert at 7:00, Concert continued around 7:30, and Symphonic closed the show at 8:00. Most of the songs that each of the levels played went along with a creepy, scary feeling in light of the Halloween season.

 

Sinfonietta played “Palladio” composed by Karl Jenkins, “Concerto Grosso Op. 6, No. 1 Allegro” composed by George Frideric Handel, “Divertimento No. 14, K. 270” composed by W.A. Mozart, and “Drifen” composed by Shirl Jae Atwell. Differing from the other levels, two of Sinfonietta’s pieces were conducted by Natasha Reed, a CSU practicum student who is training to become a conductor herself.

 

Concert played “Phantom of the Opera” composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, “Masquerade” composed by Doug Spata, “Transylvanian Lullaby” composed by John Morris, and “Farewell Symphony I. Allegro assai” composed by Franz Joseph Haydn. “Transylvanian Lullaby” featured a special violin solo by Tian Zhang.

 

Symphony played “Passacaglia” composed by Karl Jenkins, “Alleluia and Fugue” composed by Alan Hovhaness and a special piece to end the night, “Thriller”, composed by Rod Temperton, originally performed by Michael Jackson.

“I believe that the concert went really well and the audience was very impressed with the performance” says sophomore Abby Harroun. Overall, the concert was very engaging to watch and listen to; come support the Orchestra program in their next concert which will be held in December.
