An Evening of Music
presented by
The Department of Fine Arts
of the
Bibb County School System

Monday, March 18, 2013
Performing Arts center
of Central High School

Last evening I took the opportunity to attend this gala event which showcased the Bibb County Honor Choir and the Central High School Chamber Ensemble.

The Bibb County Honor Choir under the superior direction of Ms. Elise Davenport assisted by the accompanist, Mr. Gregory Austin performed thirteen selections.  No sheet music was visible.  A terrific accomplishment which resulted in a standing ovation for this Choir which consisted of 63 Elementary School singers.

The Central High School Chamber Ensemble performed three complex selections under the direction of Ms. Patricia McCall.  These 32 performers were so well regarded by the audience that I overheard a comment that they could well be performing with the Macon Symphony Orchestra (MSO).   These High School Musicians performed the following:

Allegro in D by Antonio Vivaldia/arr. Steven Frankenpohl
Lullaby by William Hofeldt
Bacchanale by Camille Saint-Saens/arr. Gregg Porter

The performance by the Ensemble also earned a standing ovation for their work!!!

A terrific evening of excellent music.  The performance exceeded the title:  "An Evening of Music."
