Music al fresco at YSHS
- Published: May 18, 2017
A glorious Monday evening was backdrop to the all-school orchestra and chorus performance on May 15, which featured music makers from 5th and 6th grade, McKinney Middle School and Yellow Springs High School. Stand-out pieces included a choral rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”accompanied by marimba, congas and tuned plastic “boom tubes,” which sound a note when struck, as well as a chamber quartet setting of the Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” played by four high schoolers. In addition to music teachers Brian Mayer, Jo Frannye Reichert and Lorrie Sparrow-Knapp, Eliza Minde-Berman, above, took to the podium for performance of a piece she had worked on with the 6th-grade orchestra.
