The 14th annual Children’s Concert took place on Feb. 9 at Northport High School. This year’s theme was “Disney Around the World.” With the talents of the symphonic winds and combined choirs, it featured music from “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and more.

For the night of the concert, the high school’s commons area was transformed into the ocean, complete with the pirate ship from “The Pirates of the Caribbean” at the center. Students and families were divided into groups and taken to visit five far off lands. At each destination, the groups experienced demonstrations of the instruments from the different instrument families: winds, strings, brass, percussion and voice. Each destination was decorated with Disney characters created by student members of the orchestra.

After visiting each destination, visitors entered the auditorium to an arrangement of “When You Wish Upon a Star” by high school junior David Jung, performed by the chamber orchestra. Each child was given a handmade magical wand before being seated.

The full auditorium was treated to classics such as “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Circle of Life,” and more!
