WSCO Holiday Extravaganza: This Friday, December 14, at 7:00 pm, West Seattle Community Orchestras will present its final concert of the season—a special evening featuring WSCO’s Intermediate Orchestra and Wind Symphony, along with the Chief Sealth High School Choir!

Highlights include an unusual version of “Silent Night,” in honor of the 200th anniversary of its composition, performed by the Intermediate Orchestra, conducted by Mike Jauregui, and an exquisitely serene “Ave Maria” performed by the Wind Symphony, conducted by Anton Coleman.

The program of classical and holiday music will culminate with Bach’s ever-popular “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” for which the Intermediate Orchestra will be augmented by brass musicians from the Wind Symphony and members of the Chief Sealth International High School choir, conducted by Brittany DeLong. The audience is invited to sing along.

Here’s a link to a video clip of the combined orchestra, brass, and Sealth choir preparing the orchestra for the concert. Enjoy!

The concert will be held in the auditorium at Chief Sealth International High School, 2600 SW Thistle Street. If you have questions, you can contact www.wscorchestras.org, or info@wscorchestras.org.

As always, there is no charge for this or any of WSCO’s concerts, though donations to support free participation by students are always appreciated.
