Sloan Creek Orchestra Newsletter

March 23, 2017


First off, thank you to everyone who came out to Twisted Root on Tuesday, we really appreciate your support! We hope that everyone has had a wonderful spring break and are starting to fall back into routine for the last few weeks of school! This will be a fast and furious end to the year, so we will try and keep everyone updated and in the loop as best we can.

Students started working on our Spring Concert music this week, and have also started working on a solo. We are so very proud of how much they are progressing and are looking forward to their next performance on May 1st.

This week, we passed out information for our annual Solo Contest. This contest is open to all 6th-8th graders. It will be held at Willow Springs Middle School on Monday, April 17th after school. Students who are interested in performing for a judge will need to return the Entry Form no later than Wednesday March 29th.

If you have any questions please let us know!
