It is MANDATORY that ALL Intermediate & Advanced orchestras students wear their FORMAL Orchestra Concert Uniform for this photo (no formal shoes needed), regardless if they purchase a package or not, for the annual orchestra composite picture to be hung in the hall by the entrance to the main office.

Please make sure your child brings the following on Thursday:

Most Creative Activity from any group in Composer Projects

Students re-enacted Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” ballet opening night. That night the audience was so outraged they chased Stravinsky out of the theatre, threw food and anything in their posession at him and tried to hang him!
Gianni Lavecchia, as Stravinsky, and Austin Gonzalez, personifying the angry mob, did this activity. Students dressed up as characters from the ballet!
