Friday evening, May 24th, four SYS chamber ensembles performed at Holy Names Music Center a concert featuring each group's music that they practiced and received coaching on from coaches, Sharon Cattich (winds), and David Armstrong (strings).

The program started with the Spokane Youth String Quartet performing the first movement of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Mozart. Members of the quartet were Christopher Anderson, violin; Aiden Winings, violin; Charles Johnson, cello, with coach David Armstrong substituting for William Farley on the viola.

The next ensemble performed a Baroque duet. Maren Jordan, oboe, and Daniel Nollmeyer, clarinet, played Bourree, by J. S. Bach, arranged by N. M. Lacanski. They were followed by a woodwind trio that included Sharon Cattich, oboe, Teresa Johnson, clarinet, and Jacob Campbell performing on the bassoon. The ensemble performed Cinq Pieces En Trio by Jacques Ibert.

Following the woodwind ensembles, the string quartet performed again, this time playing the first movement of Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18, No. 1. Finally, the concert concluded with the performance by a wind quintet of Miniatures by William Grant Still. The wind quintet included Amy Gist, flute;Teresa Johnson, clarinet; Autumn Keyanne, oboe; Luna Mattke, bassoon, and Peyton Andresick, French horn.

All the ensembles played beautifully and delighted the audience with their performances.
