Sloan Creek Orchestra Newsletter

March 2, 2017


We would like to congratulate our beginner orchestra students on a wonderful performance this past Monday night! We are very proud of how well they listened to one another, watched their conductor, and how well they prepared their music. We are looking forward to starting new music next week. We will begin working on music that is written in 5 different parts (violin 1, violin 2, viola, cello, and bass) to perform for our Spring Concert on May 1st, and our competition at Allen HS in May. We will give out more information about these events as they get closer.

Another aspect of performing on their instruments that we will begin within the next week is learning to perform a solo. All students will be required to learn a solo and will be given the OPTION to perform at our Solo Contest at Willow Springs in April. We will be passing out different solo choices to each student to choose and will begin preparing!

If you have any questions please let us know!
