Ensembles to perform at the yearly December and May school concerts include Chorus, Show Choir, A Cappella Choir, Orchestra, and Sinfonia.
A Cappella is participating in a concert on March 19th at 3:00pm in the Centennial Chapel of Christ Church Cathedral. We will be singing some of our concert repertoire and premiering a new piece! We are part of a collaborative initiative through May Festival Choruses called "25 for 25" where 25 choirs in Cincinnati are working with 25 young composers across the country to premiere 25 new pieces of choral repertoire this year. Our collaborative composer is Violet Barnum, a student at Yale University.
More than half of our choral and orchestral students are performing in St. Louis, Missouri through our biennial World Strides trip this year. The trip is April 13th-16th.
Students will have a masterclass, sing for judges and receive comments and ratings, tour the city, see Broadway sensation Wicked onstage, and enjoy a day at Six Flags.
Our May concert, Arts in Concert, is May 4th, 2023, at 7pm. Visual art created by our UA visual art class students will be prominently displayed in the gallery before the concert and the doors open at 6:30 to give our audience plenty of time to see the amazing artwork our students have brought to life.
For the vocal and instrumental portion of the concert, the theme is "Ars Nova" which means "new art" and our choral and orchestral ensembles will be playing exclusively music that was either written or arranged by modern, living composers!
