2018 Spring Concert Celebrates the Dreamers of the World
Manhattan Country School’s 2018 Spring Concert, titled “Beautiful Dreamers,” was dedicated to MCS Founder Gus Trowbridge and all the dreamers striving to make a change in the world. The program featured an impressive collection of inspiring songs.
The 8-9s opened the concert with “Deux Oiseaux (Two Birds),” a piece featuring vocals and recorder. The 9-10s followed with a recorder piece of their own titled “The Music Box.”
This year’s MCS Rock Band featured Brickelle (ukulele), Gabi M. (ukulele), Anika (guitar), Jonas (electric guitar), Tady (piano), Leo (piano), Aaron W. (percussion), Arlo (percussion), and Maceo (percussion). They performed two songs: “Obstacles” and “So Much More Than This.”
The 8-9s through eighth-grade chorus performed a selection of contemporary numbers, including “Cantamos,” “Beautiful,” “Seasons of Love,” “Don’t You Worry ’Bout a Thing,” and “Love in Any Language.”
