Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band performed their Winter concert last Wednesday at the PAC.

“I thought the Winter Concert was really nice to just listen to,” junior oboe player Amanda Lee said.

This was the first time Symphonic Wind Ensemble director Ryan Sirna had conducted the band. Sirna also chose the music, “Minor Alterations” by David Lovrien, which consisted of Christmas music in the minor scale.

“It was really cool to see Mr. Sirna perform for the first time,” Lee said. “It was pretty cool to see what music he would pick for the Winter Concert and his conducting style. [The music] sounded really cool, I don’t want to say creepy, like more dystopian.”
