Welcome to the 2017-2018 East Lansing Orchestra Program school year. We have wonderful concerts, performances, events, trips, and more planned this year. We are very excited for making music with you and your peers.
The 7th and 8th grade orchestra and band will be traveling to Chicago this year on May 4-5. Our HS seniors will be taking their annual trip to Detroit to hear the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The MS and HS orchestras will be participating in MSBOA Orchestra festival and Solo and Ensemble. In fact we will most likely host the MSBOA orchestra and band festival at the high school this year. Furthermore, our HS and MS students are eligible to audition for the MSBOA All State ensembles (audition material is available at www.msboa.org). Our annual HS Performing Arts Collage weekend will be December 8,9. On top of all that our 6th grade students will begin their journey through the program by playing their first few notes!
Our first concert of the year will take place on October 25th at the High School Center for the Performing Arts. The concert will begin at 7:00pm and will feature the 7th-12th grade orchestras. 6th grade students and their families are encouraged to attend.
Mr. Rosin will continue to teach the 7th-12th grade orchestras and Mr. Valentine will teach the 6th-7th grade orchestras. We are looking forward to the school year and lots of wonderful music making!
