Willow Springs Orchestra Newsletter

August 25, 2016

Welcome Back!

We have a had a wonderful first week with your awesome kiddos! They have come to class every day with excitement and ready to get playing. We are really looking forward to this school year.

All Region packets have been passed out to all students that are interested in auditioning for All Region. All Region is an individual competition against all the orchestra students in our region (Allen, McKinney, Rockwall, Sherman and Lovejoy) to make an "All Star" Orchestra. This is a great experience for all students because they will learn how to prepare for an audition, what it feels like to play for judges, and learn some tough music. We are working on putting together a sectional schedule to help students who want to audition to better prepare.

Looking forward to seeing you all at our registration meeting next week!
