The Frederick Gunn School Music Program will present Lovely Day, a Spring Concert featuring students in String Ensemble, Vocal Ensemble, and Jazz Band under the direction of Ron Castonguay, Director of the Arts and Music Director. Family, friends and the community are invited to attend the performance one night only, Wednesday, May 17, at 7 p.m., in the Tisch Family Auditorium of the Thomas S. Perakos Arts and Community Center. Admission is free. No registration is required.
“Our amazing winter musical production was Head Over Heels, based on music from the 1980s, so I thought, why not take it back a decade for the spring concert theme?! The 1970s were an integral part of the music world’s development, in all genres,” Castonguay said.
The repertoire will include artists such as Bill Withers, Led Zeppelin, Neil Diamond, and Kansas alongside Henry Mancini, The Beatles, and Johann Sebastian Bach, and even an ’80s hit! There will be an additional performance on Tuesday, May 16, exclusively for current Gunn students and faculty.
“This concert represents the culmination of a great year of making music with these young musicians,” Castonguay said. “They have worked so hard all year, and are excited to present this concert for you.”
