Outstanding performance last night! The Varsity Strings were strong and vibrant, with works of Bach and Mozart, and a show-stopper work of Paganini performed by Thomas Menefee, contrabass.
Cantamus brought a smile to the faces in the audience and perhaps a tear to the eye with their 13 pieces, beginning with a powerful “Star-Spangled Banner,” the beautiful “Windflowers” by Richard Ewer, works of Brahms, Billings, Rutter, and Hayes. Not to mention the transcendent, “Sure on this Shining Night” by Morten Lauridsen.
Jenn Stephens, Sales Manager for USA Today and Sports Weekly, and graduate of the School for Creative and Performing Arts in San Diego had this to say: “I was extremely impressed with your student talent pool … Bravo, well done!”
We hope to make DVDs of the concert available to the performers and their families. Check back in the next couple of days for details.
