WCMIK's first concert of the year
This evening, I attended an orchestra concert at the World’s Cutest and Most Intelligent Kid’s high school. Often in the past, I haven’t been able to get to such concerts, since I teach evening classes. But this year, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have an early-evening class, but not a late-evening class. And most of WCMIK’s concerts will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So I can actually get to many of the concerts.
This evening’s concert was fairly short – four movements from Purcell’s Fairy Queen, the Scherzo from one of Mendelssohn’s early sinfoniettas, and an early arrangement of “Scarborough Fair.” The Purcell was good, and the Mendelssohn was very good.
Next Tuesday, WCMIK has another concert, with the citywide Youth Orchestra. I’m hoping my students will let me end class early (they didn’t this evening) so I can get there in time.
