Whitman Instrumental Ensemble Performances 

The following performances are a labor of love and hard work by our Whitman musicians. A huge thank you and congratulations to seniors Annie Tang, Marc Blitz, Charley Gray, and freshman Colin Frankel for engineering the audio and video clips for these virtual performances. These students spent many, many hours working on this project to present the very best virtual performances by our students. Also, thank you to all the Whitman instrumental students for learning, perfecting, and recording their individual parts which helped to make these recordings a great success! 

We hope you enjoy our performances!
