We kicked off Halloween a week early, with the kids performing in the Armstrong Youth Orchestra Halloween concert. The kids performed in costume, which you can’t see in the videos below, but it was adorable. Lola is playing with both the Debut and Lyric Strings ensembles, which meant she played nine songs for the concert! Fletcher has moved up to the Lyric Youth Orchestra, which is his first full orchestral experience. He seems to really be enjoying the addition of the brass, woodwinds and percussion, and the music they are playing is far more complex and interesting. The first three videos below are Fletcher’s group playing Aboriginal Rhythms, Into the Storm, and Rockin’ Halloween. The last three are Lola’s group.
Though you can’t see either of them in the videos, Fletcher dressed as Link from Legend of Zelda and Lola Gray was Madeline.
