Music Never Sounded Sweeter

The school community got a musical taste of the forthcoming Christmas festivities. This year's Advent concert on 8, December 2017 was held for the first time in the sports hall. It was a welcome change; the hall was cozily decorated, the stage was big, and the audience, large. The Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Kasia Moskwa, welcomed the audience with one of the most popular Christmas concerti of A. Corelli, the "Concerto Grosso no. 8." The Junior Choir, led by Julie Plugge, then presented four atmospheric songs. The soft young voices, pure and clear as a bell, spread serene harmony, perfectly suitable for the occasion.

The orchestra then played four pieces from different genres: classic, film music and two Christmas melodies. The first part was rounded off by the joint, soulfully interpreted choral orchestral piece "Pavane For a Silent Night" with violin soloist Senén López. During the break, a variety of drinks and snacks were provided at the bar, organised by the teacher Jeanette Van der Werf.

The Secondary School's Concert Choir, accompanied by Ella Sincuk on the piano, opened the second half of the concert with three songs. "City of Stars" from "La La Land" and "All I Want for Christmas is You" were especially popular. A special highlight was the confident and touching solo performance of the students Nathalie Lorenz and David Bühler.

Thereafter, the s6 music class performed F. Repilado's (Buena Vista Social Club) "Chan Chan", partially arranged by the students themselves. Then the Chamber Choir demonstrated their technical and musical brilliance by performing three a cappella Christmas songs.

The Big Band, directed by James Ready, then played "Oye come va" and "Cantaloupe Island", which provoked enthusiastic applause at the final chords. As a grand finale, the choirs performed together "Bethlehem Child" and were then joined by the Big Band with "Santa Baby." The large audience was dismissed into the pre-Christmas period full of the festive spirit.

The ESM music ensembles pulled off a real musical feat; they professionally interpreted the multifaceted repertoire - from classical music to rock and pop - at the highest level both in a lively and technically savvy manner.
