Practice Slip Due:

Week of February 5th

LMS Orchestras

Practice slips are due Monday, 2/5 (100 minutes.) This is the first practice slip of 3rd quarter.

Solo/Ensemble: congratulations to the students who performed and were adjudicated this past Saturday! I wasn’t able to sit in on all of the performances, as I was also running the festival, but I heard great feedback from Giselle Hillyer, our adjudicator. It was fun to hear her work with the students, she is a gifted teacher and musician.

Many thanks to the students and parents who volunteered their time to help run the festival on Friday and Saturday. Students, be sure to put the time you spent volunteering on your practice slip that you turn in this Monday.

6th graders will have a test over Unit 12 this Thursday. Students may choose to play lines 1 and 2 or lines 3 and 4.

Upcoming concert: Monday, February 26th at 7:30 pm in the PHS Theatre. This concert will feature the 6th and 7th/8th grade Orchestras as well as both PHS Orchestras. I’m sure it will be a great evening of music!

Chaperones/drivers needed: the 7th and 8th graders will participate in the SEWMEA large ensemble festival Thursday, March 15th in Palouse, WA. I would really appreciate it if 2 or 3 parents would be able to transport cellos and basses to and from the event. We have 5 basses and 7 cellos to move. Parents who transport instruments could also serve as chaperones (if they wish) but it is very helpful to have some parents who stay at the festival and help monitor students. Please let me know if you’re able to help. I don’t have a time frame yet but will get that information out as soon it is available.

PHS Orchestras

Practice slips are due Monday, 2/5 (150 minutes.)

T-shirts/sweatshirts have arrived. I handed them out to Gray Orchestra Friday during class and will hand them out to Blue Orchestra Monday during class. They look great!

Dr. Meredith Arksey, violin and viola professor at WSU, will work with the Blue Orchestra this Friday, 2/9. I will be gone that day due to my husband having surgery. Ms. Crowe will be my sub, but it will be nice to have Dr. Arksey in to work with the students.

Upcoming concert: Monday, February 26th at 7:30 pm in the PHS Theatre. This concert will feature the 6th and 7th/8th grade Orchestras as well as both PHS Orchestras. I’m sure it will be a great evening of music!
