The Dudamel Orchestra Shines at Landmarks Summer Concert
We had a quiet but busy summer here at the school, so our students’ annual performance with the Landmarks Orchestra was a lovely interruption! On July 22, members of the Dudamel orchestra, including a few students who’d graduated from Conservatory Lab but returned to play with their ensemble one last time, gathered behind the Hatch Shell on Boston’s beloved Esplanade.
Our students joined the Landmarks Orchestra halfway through the program to play all three movements of Mambo Concierto by Alice Gómez, a lively afro-latino-inspired piece that was perfect for dancing.
Playing alongside the seasoned Landmarks musicians, our students added their own fresh, bright tonality to the music. They played for a packed audience, and did so with composure and style!
Thank you to the Landmarks Orchestra for giving our students this wonderful opportunity. We’re already looking forward to next year’s concert!
