The New Canaan High School band, choir and orchestra programs will perform a collaborative concert in the NCHS auditorium on Tuesday, February 8 at 7:00pm. NCHS Music teachers Scott Cranston, Leo Ficks and Sarah Gleason have been working with their students during the past month preparing for this concert that will feature over 100 of our high school musicians. Although each group performs regularly throughout each school year, they always look forward to joining forces in this annual celebration of collaborative music-making.
This year, they will present together an arrangement of Christopher Tin’s Baba Yetu, the theme song for the video game Civilization IV and the first to be nominated for and win a Grammy award (2011). Also featured is a collaboration lead by Mr. Ficks with the orchestra and band students in “Arith-metric”, a modern composition that is minimalist and structured in a round.
