    This is the first half of the concert. This video was recorded on a consumer level camcorder from the back of the church - we apologize that we were unable to fit the entire orchestra in the frame. This was a large group - with the brass in the choir left, the strings were across the whole front of the church (more first violins on the left - more basses on the right - and the entire percussion section on the left side (positioned in an extended area of the sanctuary) - they did a great job, and we wish they were all on camera! - This camera was only able to "see" the center portion of the orchestra! - Enjoy anyway!

    The musical selections for this half are:
    "Danzón No. 2", by Arturo Márquez

    "México Lindo-Part II" (Concierto para Arpa y Orquesta de Cuerdas) by Pablo Leñero Archer
    Ellie Choate, Harp with the Strings of the Southland Symphony Orchestra

    This is the second half of the concert. This video was recorded on an iPhone mini from the back of the ground floor of the church - we apologize that we were unable to fit the entire orchestra in the frame. This was a large group - with the entire percussion section on the left side (positioned in an extended area of the sanctuary) - they did a great job, and we wish they were on camera! - Likewise - the basses (and tuba) are on the far right side - and are not in the frame! - Enjoy anyway!
