On Tuesday, May 19, El Sistema Colorado concluded a successful school year with our nucleo concert at Bruce Randolph School, featuring the Bruce Randolph Drumline and Beginning Bands, Garden Place and Swansea Choirs, and El Sistema Colorado Symphonic Orchestra, which combined students from Bruce Randolph Band and Garden Place and Swansea String Orchestras.
The audience was treated to a variety of exciting pieces, including Rattlesnakes, We Believe in Music, and Simple Gifts, following an energized opening performance by the drumline.
Smiles abounded among both performers and audience members, as the nucleo concert was a beautiful celebration of all we have learned together this year.
On Thursday, March 26, The El Sistema Colorado after-school program at Swansea Elementary held its first Spring concert!
The orchestra impressed the audience by playing songs like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Mary Had a Little Lamb.
Next three students bravely performed solo for the first time.
The concert ended with a choir performance where students sang songs including Kusimama and Seize the Day from the film Newsies.
We are so proud of all of our fabulous young musicians!
On Wednesday, March 4, the El Sistema Colorado after school program at Garden Place held its annual spring concert.
The beginning orchestra showed off their skills with songs like the Ant Song and the Shh Shh Song.
They were followed by the intermediate and advanced orchestras who joined together to play music from Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Dvorak’s Symphony #9 “From the New World”.
All of the students participate in the El Sistema Choir and they ended the show with some lovely songs, including one in Latin, Dona Nobis Pacem, which means Grant us Peace.
Great job to all of our wonderful performers!
