On Tuesday, April 23rd in the Z Theater, our Regis Jesuit concert band and string orchestra put on the Spring Instrumental Concert.
The concert band beautifully played titles including Romania from Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 3 and Highlights from La La Land.
The concert band consists of many musicians, including seven graduating seniors and a musician in the Colorado All State Band, junior Ella Bartt.
When asked about the role she feels Regis Jesuit has played in her formation as a young musician, Bartt says, “The concert band gives me opportunities that I would not have outside of it. Through the RJ concert and, I can play in many different honor bands across the state.”
The String Orchestra played pieces including the Star Wars Main Theme, Haydn’s Symphony No. 3 Finale (Presto), and Interior Castle, which was composed by our very own Tim Sauer ’06.
The Concert Band and the String Orchestra have been working since January to perfect their pieces for this concert. This time these musicians have spent together has given them great memories and lasting friendships.
Freshman Pheonix Lee says, “I’m very glad I played in the orchestra this year. I’ve met so many new people who I have formed great relationships with. Orchestra really has brightened my freshman year.”
