CGPS Celebrates Return to In-Person Concerts

This past week, Middle and Prep School musicians captivated the community with superb instrumental and vocal performances during their in-person winter concerts. With sets from the Orchestra, Treble Choir, Concert Chorale, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Chamber Ensemble and more, the Prep School concert made for a delightful evening of beautiful music. The students performed songs such as "Back in Business" by Stephen Sondheim, "Days of Wine and Roses" by Henry Mancini, "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder and "Red" by Taylor Swift. Similarly, the Middle Schoolers wowed their families, friends and teachers with their talent and passion for all things music. Featuring tremendous performances from the Orchestra, Big Band, Chorus and Concert Band, the Middle School winter concert was a big hit. The exceptional student musicians dazzled with renditions of "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay, "Samba La Bamba" by William Owens, "We Won't Stop Dreaming" by PinkZebra, "Medieval Kings" by Soon Hee Newbold and more. The Middle School Chorus got everyone in the holiday spirit when they threw on Santa hats and sang "Winter Wonderland" while performing accompanying choreography. 

A spectacular return to in-person concerts following a hiatus due to COVID, both events were a wonderful celebration of music and its ability to bring communities together. "The concerts were a huge success. While the music department is incredibly proud of the amazing work our students created during distance and hybrid learning last year, nothing really compares to coming together as a community to make music," says Middle and Prep School Music Department Head Dr. Kary Haddad. "The enthusiasm and talent our students displayed were fantastic to see. Congratulations to all of the performing musicians!"
