This concert will have exiting pieces and even some well-known pieces but with no lyrics it will have a tendency to run long and be boring.

This will be the second best concert of the season being entirely vocal music with accompaniment and the most number of well known pieces for any one of the concerts this season.

The end of the season every year holds with it a bittersweet melonclly that can not alow you to pass by the concert this year though, it also needs to inclue airplain pillows as the only vocal piece is in latin and nothing is exiting.
