Chamber Orchestra Music Recordings

    Traditional Folk Song
    The Chamber Orchestra will be playing a unique, rearranged version of this Bulgarian folk song. The version you’re listening to is more solo-esque and less tutti-tastic than the version that will be played.

The Chamber Orchestra will also be playing an orchestral rendition of Edvard Grieg’s piano piece, “Norwegian Dance No. 2.” There currently aren’t any professional recordings of the orchestral version, so here’s a video of two elderly folks playing away on the piano instead:

’09-’10 Recordings

The quality of WHS’s instrumental music ensembles was outstanding last year, so last May, Mr. Walczuk had recordings made of the Symphonic Band, Orchestra, and Jazz I. These recordings are now available for listening and downloading on this website. Be sure to leave a comment on what you think!
