Summer Music Fun! Event

Orchestra students participated in a 2-day summer camp. We learned Magnificent Seven, The Pink Panther, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow during those 2 days.

We had 14 of our wonderful students participate:

Natalia Cyriac, Audrey Davis, Emilie Etchart, Ethan Flanery, Trinity Fuchs, Emily Grace, Isabel Hopkins, Hadleigh Johnston, Avery and Parker Kolkebeck, Jaidan Molloy, Nicole Morgan, Austin Simpson, and Lauryn Zlotucha.

They did a super job learning the music and played so well at the performance! Great job, everyone!

Thank you to all the parent volunteers - you helped make this possible! Thank you to Arlene Zlotucha for taking such wonderful photos!

Fall Concert

Our October concert with JD Strings was a fantastic and exciting event! We had a little fun wearing some extra Halloween-inspired costumes or stayed in all black. Our concert tunes consisted of Schubert's Der Erlkonig, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and A-flat, among others.

Music in the Halls

Music in the Halls is a great way to play just for fun for anyone passing by! We played in the Great Hall in December with members of JD Strings while wearing fun Christmas-themed clothes and hats. We played music from The Nutcracker, and The Polar Express as well as Christmas Eve/Sarajevo, Celtic Carol and A Solitary Wish.

Region Solo and Ensemble

A select few JD students prepared and performed solos and duets for a judge in March 2020. Very proud of their hard work and determination!
