Mezzo soprano Grace Darko, a Fifth Former from Bronx, NY, sang Sebben Crudele by early 18th century composer Antonio Caldara. Norbie Vazqueze '21, from Prospect Park, NJ, played "When the Saints Go Marching In" on the trumpet. Classmate and fellow trumpeter Henry Sansone, a boarder from Ross, CA, performed Jerome Kern's "All the Things You Are."
Sixth Form baritone Jason Hwang from South Korea did a beautiful job singing Schubert's "Die Post" from Winterreise (D. 911, Op. 89, 1828) and "Les Berceaux" from Fauré's Three songs, Op. 23, No. 1. Sophia Liu, a Fifth Former from Beijing, China, played Paul Taffanel's Andante Pastoral on the flute.
