South Middle Winter Concerts and Art Show

The South Middle School Music Department is proud to present Winter Concerts on Tuesday, Dec. 10, and Wednesday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium, 349 Lakeville Rd. Concerts are free and each lasts about an hour.

The Concert on Dec. 10 will feature the Senior Orchestra, Senior Chorus, and Senior Band. Classical selections will feature music by Rimsky-Korsakov, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky. Popular works by Jay Althouse, David Bobrowitz, and music from Dear Evan Hansen will also be heard, along with traditional holiday classics.

The Concert on Dec. 11 will feature Orchestra 6, Chorus 6, and Band 6. Classical selections will include music by Handel and Standridge. Popular works by John Williams, The Beach Boys, and Lady Gaga will also be performed, in addition to a winter wonderland of a grand finale!

Instrumental students are taught by Music Department Head Alan Schwartz, Mark Boschen, and Andrew DeNise. Choral students are taught by Korey Coppola.

According to Mr. Schwartz, these concerts “offer perfect opportunities to introduce children from pre-K through grade 5 to the concerts in which they may very well perform in the future.”

Concertgoers can also enjoy the South Middle Winter Art Show, which will be on display in the school lobby during the week of Dec. 9. The exhibit includes a variety of drawings, paintings, and prints created by students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Art students are taught by Art Department Head Cynthia Smith, Karla Krupala, and Jennifer Shea.
