I was very pleased with this Springs Prelude Strings Concert. Compared to other concerts I have heard them play in the past I thought this one showed quit a bit of musical maturity. They are really beginning to shine in their own right as an exceptional performing organization for their age level.
Pieces where played with real expression and feeling. Eyes were very much on the conductor with a very professional attitude. They were all taking themselves very seriously as musicians. You had the feeling that much of the music was nearly memorized. Even notes in the upper register were rather in tune and played with a good tone. This is notable since the pieces they are playing have steadily become more interesting as well as difficult over the years.
It is even more pleasing that we have 4 students from TEC participating in these wonderful orchestras. This has been a great place to develop there skills as orchestra members from the very beginning.
Bravo Prelude Strings. I hope that some one’s dad got some video of the performance this year. I would love to have a sample to share with future families. Wish more of the younger children from our program had attended these concerts. I am sure they would have found a concert of this length manageable and inspiring.
