On May 8 the lower school instrumental and choral programs held their 2012 Bucknall Spring Concert, directed by Louis Hoffman and Jennifer Cowgill. The performance featured dozens of young students and showcased Bucknall’s instrumental program, open to all students K-5.
The instrumental program includes a comprehensive course of study in orchestra, string, wind and jazz ensembles and beginning group lessons, as well as the opportunity to study privately with specialty teachers. The program focuses on musicianship, ensemble playing, articulation, dynamics, intonation and understanding of different styles through exposure to various repertoires.
All these skills were on radiant display during the spring concert, from both singers and instrumentalists, giving the crowd a great night of entertainment.
