NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- A highlight from the PAVE Band & Orchestra Concert last night: The PAVE Orchestra filled the Linda E. Kelly Theatre in New Rochelle High School with the sounds of the "Capriol Suite," a work by a little-known English composer Peter Warlock, who lived 1894-1930.

Suzanne Morello, NRHS orchestra director, conducts.

Warlock set Renaissance melodies to modern harmonies, explains Marc Schneider, City School District of New Rochelle Director of Art and Music.

"This piece has gained a following among string players around the world because of its clever treatment of older themes," Schneider said.
