Dozens of Jesuit musicians, including the drum line, advanced band, guitar ensemble, choir, and chamber orchestra, showcased their talents at the Winter Music Concert on Saturday (Dec. 5) in the Multi-Purpose Room.
Led by Music Director Nina Wegmann and assisted by Dominick DiCarlo, the concert included 26 pieces, ranging from the guitar ensemble's rendition of "Hotel California" by The Eagles and the choir's creative version of "For the Longest Time" by Billy Joel, to the band's performance of "Phantom of the Opera" by Andrew Lloyd Webber and a chamber orchestra showcase of "Oblivion" by Astor Piazzolla. The drum line earned a rousing ovation with its high energy rhythm, and the pep band, conducted by William Ferguson '16 (homepage photo), provided a dynamic finish.
Jesuit musicians are slated to perform many times in the spring, including at Celebration of the Arts on April 10, the Mission Drive Day Music Concert in St. Anthony’s Chapel (students only) on April 22, and the Spring Music Concert on April 29.
Please see the photo slideshow from the Winter Music Concert below, as well as four videos from the concert: “Oblivion” by the chamber orchestra with a violin solo by Spencer Whipple ’16, Queen's “Bohemian Rhapsody” by the chamber orchestra, and two drum line numbers:
