Lovejoy Orchestra Newsletter

August 25, 2016

Welcome Back!

We have had a GREAT first week. Students seem excited and all orchestra's started first day with instruments producing great sounds. We are already getting excited about this year with your amazing kiddos.

All Region music has been passed out to all students that are interested. It is very important that students start preparing immediately to have a successful audition in October. We are working to start sectionals by the third week of school to help those students better prepare.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Picnic on Friday!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us!
