The WSHS Orchestra will present their Winter Concert on Thursday, Dec. 5, in the High School Auditorium. This concert offers a time not only to enjoy wonderful music, but also to do some worthwhile shopping at the annual silent auction,a benefit for Strings in Motion, Inc., which supports the orchestra program.
The silent auction will begin at 6:45-7:25 p.m. and guests may place their bids on a variety of interesting and fun baskets, as holiday music is played by a chamber group in the concourse. The auction will run for another fifteen minutes after the concert and then bidders will learn who has won each basket.
The concert itself, beginning at 7:30, will include Brandenburg NO. 3, 1st Movement, and Vistas de Mexico, with three movements. Music from the Nutcracker, including Waltz of the Flowers and Trepak, will add a holiday theme to the concert, in a beautiful setting of lights and poinsettias which always makes the orchestra’s winter concert a festive way to kick off the season.
The public is warmly invited to attend both the Silent Auction and this delightful concert, as well as to enjoy the cookies and punch served afterwards.
