From the Performing Arts

Excellence is what we strive for, and our musical ensembles demonstrate what that can look and sound like!

On a Sunday in November, D-E’s Stage Band, led by faculty member Robert DeBellis, hosted their Jazz Brunch for friends and family. Highlights included Antônio Carlos Jobim’s  “One Note Samba” and Quincy Jones’s “Soul Bossa Nova”. It was a treat for the ears!

Following the Jazz Brunch was the annual Winter Concert, featuring the Middle & Upper School Orchestra with Upper School Chorus. The show began with the Middle School Percussion Ensemble and their rendition of Duke Ellington’s “C Jam Blues” followed by the Middle and Upper Winds & Brass Ensembles, StringJam, Middle & Upper School Orchestras, and Upper School Chorus. Star Wars’ fans may have recognized the finale piece, “Duel Of the Fates” from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999). BRAVO to all of our ensembles for their fantastic performances!
