Gabrielino High School’s band and orchestra showcased a semester’s worth of effort on Wednesday night at their Winter Concert, which was held in the Goodson Theatre at 7 p.m.
The advanced orchestra, concert band, and Gabrielino Eagle Marching Regiment (GEMR) were joined for the first time by the intermediate orchestra on Wednesday. This year’s freshmen class brought more additions to Gabrielino’s music program in comparison to previous years.
In contrast, the size of the concert band was unusually small, totaling only 12 musicians. Despite these changes, Melissa Romero, director of Gabrielino’s Music department, and her students worked with what they had, and put together a program with a diverse range of music genres, including classical, festive, and 70s rock pieces.
