Lovejoy Orchestra Newsletter
November 10, 2016
Thank you to everyone who came out to Raising Cane's on Tuesday night for our spirit night. We really appreciate your support of our program!
Our next performance at the Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, December 3rd. The orchestra concert will start with the SCIS Beginner Orchestra, then the WIllow Springs Orchestras and finish with the High School Groups. The concert will begin at noon, we will let you know when musicians need to arrive in a few weeks!
The high school groups have been focusing on tone quality and right hand technique. We have been discussing bow lane, bow weight, bow speed and tilting of the bow to achieve more accurate dynamics with good tone quality.
Have a wonderful weekend!
