Hundreds Gather to Celebrate Spring Fling!
Joy radiated from stage of the Strand Theatre on Sunday. Over 800 friends, family, and neighbors came from miles around to hear the students of Conservatory Lab Charter School perform an afternoon of choral and orchestral music. Fifty-five parents volunteered as ushers, stage hands, box office managers, reception caterers, and countless other roles that made this event a magnificent success.
The event generated over $11,000 in revenue.
Prior to the performance, guests meandered through exhibits of Music and Movement, featuring interactive demonstrations by K1 students, as well as a paper orchestra show-and-tell presented by students from K2. The audience was invited to dance along and had the opportunity to make a bow-hold under a kindergartner’s supervision.
The concert, emceed by local comedian Tom Hayes, showcased the vocal and instrumental performances of both the Bernstein and Dudamel ensembles, joined by the Abreu ensemble in the final number, Shake the Papaya Down. Thank you to all who helped make this a triumphant celebration for our community!
