We need of someone to head up the Orchestra Swag Committee. We have a new logo & we'd like to get it out there! We can use the same company Marching Band does & utilize their templates - talk to me if you're interested!
Day For Strings Parent Coordinator
This is a Day For Strings year and our theme is BROADWAY! Parent coordinators help coordinate food and chaperones for Day For Strings. Janis Reinke has it all laid out and pretty much down to a science. This is a lot of fun. Let me know if you're interested in chairing or co-chairing.
Students will be using Google Classroom extensively for announcements, short responses, references and quizzes. Make sure your student is signed up:
HS Orchestra - class code 2pzod
This is the manual of expectations and procedures we all agree to live by in HS Orchestra this year. It is a great resource and reference. Please read, sign & turn in Member Agreement Form by next Monday.
Orchestra is a TEAM SPORT and performances before a live audience is the culmination of weeks, months and years of individual work and collective learning. There is no way to replicate a live performance. It is imperative the all members of our team perform at all concerts.
For Your Instrument
Every student needs access to an instrument to practice on. Students are responsible for practicing technique packets and preparing their own orchestra parts outside of class - this is our homework. This instrument needs to be in good working condition:
1. New strings purchased & installed
For Music and Practice
1. Black Binder with pockets
