The advanced orchestra is doing VERY well. It is so much fun to work with a class with so many hard working and high achieving students. We have been working on vibrato, shifting, and have started working on 2 octave scales. Students have been learning a new piece as well as refining an already performed piece for our upcoming festival.
Our festival is on Saturday, November 7th. We will load the bus at 7:30am at the middle school. Students 12 and under should bring $7.50 for lunch and students 13 and older should bring $9.50 for lunch. Lunch money will be collected on the bus. Intermediate will warm up at 9am and perform at 9:30. Students will then have the opportunity to work with the judge. After they perform, the students will evaluate two other performing groups. We will head to lunch about 12-12:30. We should return to Cedar City by 2:30 or 3:00pm. Students can call on the bus when we are nearing town.
Thank you for encouraging your student to practice EVERY day. Each child is expected to practice a minimum of 20 minutes each day.
