  • Fall Concert: Wired Get Tickets

    Thursday, October 14th, 7PM in the Dreher Auditorium

    The Dreher Orchestras are WIRED for our Fall Concert. Lauren Bernofsky uses sounds inspired by current pop music in Wired using techniques that are purely fun for the performers. Next is the seminal song from the alternative rock genre, Smells Like Teen Spirit, where the heavy and intense sounds of Nirvana are heard with and through the orchestra. Bill Withers's timeless anthem, Lean on Me and lastly, The Cars 1978 hit featured in Stranger Things, Moving in Stereo both are the middle of the program. The closing piece is by the classical/ hip hop duo, Black Violin, melding Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 with hip hop rhythms and other sounds. Flashlights on!!!
