Family and friends gathered in Laidlaw Hall to enjoy Fall Music Night on Nov. 4. It was UCC’s first major musical event of the school year, showcasing our talented boys. With just a few weeks to prepare, all of the bands and UCC’s choir, The Blue Notes, performed brilliantly to a delighted audience.
The senior wind ensemble opened the show to much applause and set the tone for a very entertaining evening. The Year 1 junior jazz band followed, featuring a wonderful solo by Ben Lee on flugelhorn in “Night Mist.” Performances continued with the concert, symphonic, Intermediate and Senior jazz bands, as well as the vocal harmonies of The Blue Notes. All highlighted the incredible and lively talent of our musicians. The evening ended with a strong solo performance by Brandon Tse in the senior jazz band. The song was titled “Hit the Ground Running.” The boys certainly did!
Many thanks go out to Mr. Gomes, Mr. Smith, Ms. Scott and Mr. Merrick. It’s fantastic to see and hear how far everyone has come in such a short time. Fall Music Night was an enjoyable success!
