Villa Maria musicians entertained family and friends with a beautiful concert that included orchestra, string ensemble, handbell, and vocal performances.
The orchestra began the show with I Dreamed a Dreamed from Les Miserables. Senior Elizabeth Callahan was the featured performer on oboe for Gabriel’s Oboe by Morricone.
The Handbell Choir performed four pieces, including a haunting arrangement of Amazing Grace. The Madrigals were next, the Sull’aria duet from The Marriage of Figaro, among other pieces. The String Ensemble played three pieces, including Entrance of Queen Sheba by Handel. The Concert Chorus opened with We Are One, conducted by Villa senior Kelly Mulhern. All the musicians joined forces for the finale, Bridge Over Troubled Water.
