Soloists and the children’s choir stole the show

KW5D1285 The first part of last night’s Christmas concert featured solo performances. Mozart’s, Concert for horn showcased the prodigious talent of Emilio Bañuls Escobedo. Then we were treated to Burés, Gran Fantasia para dos clarinetes with Alejandro Guillén Alcocer and his brother, Germán Guillén Alcocer taking the lead parts.

To round off part one; Mister and Miss Music for 2012 took the floor to dance to Shostakovich, Jazz Suite number 2: waltz.

For the second part of the concert, the children’s choir joined the band. The band started with the medley of Christmas music arranged by Leroy Anderson. Then the children joined in with Arre Boorriquito followed by White Christmas, Silent Night and Campana Sobre Campana.

The evening was rounded off by everyone joining in by clapping along  with the Radetzky March by Johann Strauss.
