On the night of Oct. 26, advanced ensembles performed in the Recital Hall, a more intimate and concentrated setting. e concert consisted of Jazz Combos, Chamber Winds, String Sinfonietta, Steel Band G, Concert Glee Club, and the Treble Choir.

This was Treble Choir’s first performance, and they sang “Ain’t No Grave Can Hold My Body Down” and “Rain Tuahine ‘O Mãnoa,” said Isabel Adolf (12). “Based on our practice and effort, we were all really happy with our performance,” Adolf said.

“It was a big change from being in the Glee Club, and being in a smaller group gave us all a chance to challenge ourselves, since smaller groups require more effort and participation,” Adolf said.

“I hope the students take away the experience of preparing for a concert, as well as the contribution that each person has, and that the value of each individual in a smaller ensemble is even more important than that of a

larger one,” Jazz Combo and Wind Ensemble conductor Michael Bomwell said.

“As music teachers, we always like to do something like this earlier in the year because it’s o en easier for smaller, more advanced groups to prepare concert materials early on,” Bomwell said.

“I want my students to appreciate the other groups performances as well as enjoy and feel con dent about their own,” G-period Steel Band conductor Alan Bates said.
