The City High Dessert Concert has been a tradition for 36 years.
“I really like the dessert concert because we play really fun music that’s different from the rest of the year,” Annalise Rummelhart ‘19, a violinist in the City High Symphony orchestra, said.
This concert is a fundraiser for the orchestra department at City High. The funds from this concert provide the City High orchestra with instruments, music, clinicians, transportation, instrument repair, and much more.
This year’s program is themed music from Disney’s Fantasia and Fantasia 2000. The last piece on the program is Berceuse and Finale by Igor Stravinsky. The program will also feature many well known pieces such as music from The Nutcracker ballet and All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera.
In addition to being an orchestra concert, there are also voice students Emma Arp ‘17 and Fred Ogilvie ‘17 and band students such as Cassie Birnbaum ‘17 performing. The concert is followed by a reception with desserts. In the past years, the Dessert Concert has brought in the biggest crowds out of all the orchestra concerts. The City High orchestra department is hoping to keep this high attendance this year and throughout years in the future.
The concert is on Thursday, March 30 and tickets can be purchased through the music office.
“If you usually think orchestra concerts are boring, you should come because [this concert] isn’t just a regular concert. There are some really cool pieces and plus you can eat cupcakes,” Rummelhart said.
