Digital Wind Ensemble Performance

Our High School Wind Ensemble virtually performed "Crown of Thorns" by Julie Giroux. The song is a tone poem that describes, in musical terms, Jesus Christ's journey from the Last Supper, through the betrayal of Judas Iscariot, the abduction by Roman soldiers, the judgement under Pontius Pilate, the crown of thorns and the procession to the cross, culminating in the Ascension into Heaven. Students recorded themselves while listening to a click track, which is the same method used for recording soundtracks to movies and TV shows. View their performance on our YouTube channel.
