Sloan Creek Orchestra Newsletter

November 10, 2016


Thank you to everyone who came out to Raising Cane's last Tuesday night, we really appreciate your support of our program.

Our next performance is at the Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, December 3rd. The concert will begin with the SCIS orchestra at noon. We will give you more information on what time and where the students need to meet before the concert by next week.

All classes have been working hard on left and right hand technique, improving tone quality with their bows, and note reading. They are continuing to use their Sound Innovations books daily, with their 3 pieces for the concert. We are really looking forward to you hearing how much they have improved in just over a month!

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
