The musical talents of students from Elwick Community School and King Edward School will be on stage tonight for the Sistema Winnipeg Holiday Concert.
About 100 Grade 1 and 5 students will be performing in smaller ensemble groups and as a whole at the Franco-Manitoban Cultural Centre.
WSO principal violist and Sistema Winnipeg conductor Dan Scholz, or better known as “Conductor Dan” by Sistema Winnipeg students, will conduct the orchestras.
The students will perform holiday classics such as Jingle Bells and Chinese Dance from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Other pieces include Copland’s Simple Gifts, Handel’s Water Music, and a Hawaiian version of Over the Rainbow.
Doors open at 6 p.m. for rush seating with a reception following the performance. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
