This year’s winter concert for the Denny International Middle School and Chief Sealth International High School student ensembles has been spread across three Thursdays. We stopped in last night, during the second of the three free concerts in the Sealth auditorium. Above, the Denny Junior Orchestra; below, the Sealth Choir.
In both of our clips, the students were conducted by Heather Shaffer. The final concert of the series is next Thursday, with the Denny International Concert Band and the Chief Sealth International Concert Band, 7 pm.
P.S. Also coming up, another youth-music opportunity at Sealth – more than just a concert – also a chance for interested students and families to explore – Southwest Super String Saturday on January 26th:
The community is invited to hear the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) perform excerpts from last Sunday’s Benaroya Hall concert at a free mini-concert on January 26th at 10:30 a.m. at Chief Sealth International High School Auditorium.
After the mini-concert, Seattle Youth Symphony musicians will mentor younger musicians who participate in the SYSO in the Schools program at Arbor Heights, Concord, Gatewood, Roxhill, Sanislo, Highland Park and West Seattle Elementary schools as well as at Denny International Middle School. These student musicians will have the opportunity to participate in master classes, chamber ensemble demonstrations, and play side-by-side with Seattle Youth Symphony. SYSO thanks media sponsors West Seattle Blog and Classical KING-FM for their support of Southwest Seattle Super String Saturday.
