    Fall Strings Concert

    Post  phuynh on Wed Oct 07, 2009 1:46 am

    On Oct. 27, Orchestra One, Two, and Three performed at the Pasadena High School Auditorium for the Annual Fall Strings Concert. Not only was Arcadia High School there to perform but also the other three Arcadia middle schools—Dana Middle school, First Avenue Middle School, and Foothills Middle School. Now in high school, all three middle school’s orchestras are combined so that there “are not any more prejudice” or rivalries, anymore. The size of Orchestra has tripled from their average middle school’s so a lot more friends are made and they can “finally come together to create something beautiful”—music. For Orchestra One, this experience because in middle school they were given the opportunity to perform at the Fall Strings Concert, as well. They have been practicing in classes, since the beginning of September a period each school day and each individual had to practice at least half an hour every day of the week. As the concert came closer and closer—more practices were held after school that lasted for a couple of hours. Orchestra One played three pieces of music—Carmen Suite by George Bizet Arr. Vernon Leidig, Allegretto from "the Creatures of Prometheus" op. 43 by Beethoven /RE, and Song without Words Opus 102 No. 6 by Felix Mendelssohn Arr. by Tim McCarrick. Instructor of Orchestra One, Mr. England, had already chosen all the chairs but there were no solos that night because it was too soon and he did not want to put too much pressure on the beginning class. The tension was thick and heavy because this was the first time for Orchestra One to perform as an entire group. According to Orchestra One’s First Chair, Nicole Kim, the most satisfying part of the concert is when they just finished playing and “there is the big silence” because the audience was speechless on how well they executed their production and quickly “give a big round of applause.” The entire Fall Strings Concert lasted around five hours, but time seemed to fly by when one is lost in a world of music.




    To whom it may concern:
    Sorry if it is like fifty words short, no one replied to me except for orchestra one people. i plan on goi ng to mr. england and forbes asking them about these. it may seem like i only have the perspective of orchestra one but when i get the emails from the rest of the orchestras then i will add their point of view as well.

Talking about past experiences always helps them “remember being one of those seventh graders not too long ago” and they then realize that “time really does fly.”
    Audiences were entertained with the beautiful playings of all three middle school's orchestras, Orchestra,1,2, and 3. The entire Fall String Concert lasted around five hours, but time seemed to fly by when one is lost in a world of music.

    The most advanced of the Orchestras, Orchestra 3 dazzled viewers with “Sinfonietta in D Major” by W.A.

During third period, violins, violas, and cellos can be heard blasting from the Orchestra Building. Orchestra 3 has been working long and hard for the performance with the guidance of both Mr. England and Mr. Forbes. The most outstanding song played was “Symphony No. 44’Trauner’” because they have been practicing it since the beginning of Summer Music Camp. All three Orchestra had to come about an hour earlier so that everything could be set up and the concert could start without a hitch. Julia Namkoong feels that the Fall String Concert is a “very special and rewarding event” because the schools can showcase all “the hard work and passion [shown] towards music.”

The air was filled with music varying from classical to pop and different styles of arrangement.

    On Oct. 26, Orchestras 1, 2, and 3 performed at the Pasadena High School Auditorium for the Annual Fall String Concert. Arcadia High School's Orchestras were accompanied by the three Arcadia middle schools—Dana Middle School, First Avenue Middle School, and Foothills Middle School.

    Orchestra 1 has been practicing in class since the beginning of September and each individual had to practice at least half an hour every day of the week. As the concert came closer and closer—more practices were held after school that lasted for a couple of hours. Orchestra 1 played three pieces of music—“Carmen Suite”, “Allegretto” from "the Creatures of Prometheus", and “Song without Words Opus 102 No. 6” . Instructor of Orchestra 1, Mr. England, had already chosen first, second, and third chair(the three most advanced musicians of Orchestra 1) but there were no solos that night because he did not want to put too much pressure on the beginning class. The tension was unbearable because this was the first time for Orchestra 1 to perform as an entire group in front of an actual audience. According to Orchestra 1’s first chair, Nicole Kim, the most satisfying part of the concert is when they just finished playing and “there is the big silence” because the audience is speechless and quickly “give[s] a big round of applause.”

    Following after Orchestra 1 was Orchestra 2 which played “Concerto Grosso, Opus 6, No. 3”; “Rhosymedre”; “Fantasy on Simple Gifts” arranged by Robert Kerr. Most people in Orchestra 2 have been performing at this concert every year since seventh grade.

    The most advanced of the Orchestras, Orchestra 3 dazzled viewers with “Sinfonietta in D Major” by W.A. Mozart, “Fantasie”, and “Symphony No. 44’Trauner”. During third period, violins, violas, and cellos can be distinctly heard from the Orchestra Building. Orchestra 3 has been working long and hard for the performance with the guidance of both Mr. England and Mr. Forbes. Most of Orchestra 3 felt that “Symphony No. 44’Trauner’” was the best piece played because they have been practicing it since the beginning of Summer Music Camp. All three Orchestra had to come about an hour earlier so that everything could be set up and the concert could start without a hitch. Julia Namkoong feels that the Fall String Concert is a “very special and rewarding event” because the schools can showcase all “the hard work and passion [shown] towards music.”
