Solo Entry Forms are due! If your student is interested in performing at our annual Solo Contest, please make sure that this form is turned in.
Our next performance will be at LHS on May 1st. Students will need to wear nice dress clothes and nice shoes. Please no shorts, t-shirts, or tennis shoes. The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. Students will need to arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. so that we may rehearse as a group before the concert.
Students have been working very hard on learning new skills on their instruments. All classes are working on advanced finger patterns and different bowing techniques. We are really looking forward to showing off our progress for you at our May 1st performance!
If you have any questions please let us know!
