Dear Middle School Orchestra Students and Parents,
I am happy to announce that we have added a concert in preparation for our Chicago Trip. The concert will take place on Thursday, March 20th at 7:00 pm in the middle school auditorium. This concert is for all 7th and 8th grade orchestra students even if they are not going on the Chicago trip. All orchestra students will benefit from this performance.
The concert will have a little different look to it. The students will perform their pieces and then they will participate in a clinic/coaching session right on stage. This is similar to what we will be doing in Chicago. This year we will have Mr. Rodney Page as our guest clinician. Mr. Page is a graduate of Michigan State University, a violinist, a DJ, and a fantastic music educator. He will be working with the students right on the stage after they perform. I encourage all of you to stay and watch the clinic. Mr. Page will bring a wonderful energy to the clinic as well as excellent teaching. The entire program should last about one hour.
Thank you for your continued support of the orchestra program in East Lansing.
Orchestra Teacher, 7-12
