Willow Springs Orchestra Newsletter
October 13, 2016
This week in orchestra, all classes have been working hard on technique. Scale development, tone development, intonation, complex rhythms and finger patterns. All orchestra's are working very hard for our first performance!
Our Fall Concert is quickly approaching on Monday, October 24th. All orchestra's are working very hard on preparing this music to you and we are looking forward to our performance! Our concert is currently set to be in the courtyard at Lovejoy High School starting at 6:30 p.m. Audience members will need to bring chairs and/or blankets to sit on during the concert. You are welcome to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy during the performance. If we have bad weather that night, we will move the concert in to the gym and the start time will be 7 p.m. instead of 6:30.
Have a great weekend!
