This year’s Viva la Musica! was no exception as audiences were delighted with a warm, welcoming atmosphere of musical delights — featuring a wide variety of music across time from Classical music such as Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Violins in D Major and Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony, to contemporary hits like Video Games Live and Kiki’s Delivery Service of Studio Ghibli fame.
Smaller ensembles were also given their time to shine, showcasing performances such as The Winding River by the Percussion ensemble, as well as a heart-warming cello and piano rendition of Joe Hisaishi’s Departures.
Returning as guest performers, the Contemporary Singers Ensemble performed a selection of beloved favourites from Disney classics with entertaining skits in between, such as The Little Mermaid’s Part of Your World and Aladdin’s A Whole New World.
