“Night At the Pops”Hits All the High Notes!

“Night At the Pops” hits all the high notes demonstrating once again the incredible talent of Dawnwood and Centereach High School students. An especially unique ensemble which performed that night was the combined orchestra, composed of the Wind Ensemble and the Philharmonic Orchestra . It was a very rare occurrence mixing the band and string instruments of these two groups,  which Ms. Wesnofske conducted for the beautiful and technically challenging fifteen minute piece, “Phantom of the Opera,” based on the various melodies and tunes from the play. Additionally, scholarship awards were given out to three senior musicians from each ensemble type, the band, orchestra, or vocals.
