Santiago Hills and Northwood Elementary Instrumental Director Diana Gray guides violinists through a section of carefully executed pizzicato in “Royal Promenade”.

The concert began with the elementary school orchestras, who performed “Royal Promenade” by Don Brubaker, conducted by Dianna Gray. The young performers displayed a level of professionalism in their performance, balancing multi-part music and even excelled in executing different textures such as pizzicato. 

“You learn a lot from music that you don’t from other disciplines,” Gray said. “I really think the kids are getting the experiences that we hoped they would get from tonight.”
