Willow Springs Orchestra Newsletter

September 15, 2016

Parents,


Thank you to everyone who was able to come out and support us at Panda Express Tuesday night. We really appreciate all of your support!


This week in orchestra, all classes have been working hard on technique. Scale development, tone development, intonation, and finger patterns. All orchestra's have been making big strides in their concert music and we have been able to split off to work with smaller sections to help better with preparation.


All Region Sectionals have started. If your child is auditioning for All Region next month, they should make every effort to attend these sectionals!


Have a great weekend!
