Willow Springs Orchestra Newsletter
September 29, 2016
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!
We started our annual fundraiser this past Monday with daily prizes for students to earn. This fundraiser helps pay for supplies for the students, entry fee to our contest in May, bus transportation to event, instruments, and general upkeep of the instruments in the orchestra room. Thank you so much for your support of the orchestra program!
Have a great weekend!
We will have help sessions each week from 8:15 - 8:45 AM in the orchestra room.
Tuesdays - Violins
Wednesdays - Violas
Thursdays - Cellos
Fridays - Basses
Or after school, by appointment!
