Lovejoy Orchestra Newsletter

March 2, 2017

Parents,


We have had a very busy week in the orchestra room this week. First off, Congratulations to the Philharmonic Orchestra on their concert this past Monday night, we are so proud of how they performed!


The Symphony Orchestra competed at UIL Concert and Sight reading Contest yesterday at Allen HS. They performed extremely well. They recieved a SUPERIOR rating on stage and an EXCELLENT rating in sightreading. This is the first time ever that our Non-Varsity Orchestra has competed at UIL and they made Lovejoy proud with their performance.


The Chamber Orchestra competes today at UIL Concert and Sight reading Contest, we will tweet out their ratings after they perform!


All orchestra's will continue working on technique and will begin work on our Washington D.C. trip music and Spring Concert music.


If you have any questions please let us know!

The online payment system for the Orchestra Spring Trip is finally available. I know that most everyone sent checks for the first payment, however you may still use the online system for future payments.

Below are the instructions on how to access it. It is a little clumsy since it is also attached to our Charms accounts.


Here is the Link:

When the link opens click on the Washington D.C. Orchestra Trip button.


In the next window (Charms parent/member/student area)

Enter lovejoyorch in the school code field.


In the next window enter your student's charms password. It should be their student ID ( unless you have changed it)


The next window ask for you to change your password, you do not have to change it. Click on the $ tap at the top of the window and it will take you to the Student Financial Statement window.


In the Student Financial Statement window you will click on the select trip drop down menu and select Washington DC. Click on make payment


In the next window you will enter the amount of the payment you wish to make and click on start payment.
