Orchestra Make a Note: Aug. 26-30

The kids are off to a great start in orchestra!  I think I have most of our fall concert programmed already which I don’t think has EVER happened!  

Here is what is happening this week:
Tuesday, August 27
ABOB Fall Fundraiser kickoff
Chamber Strings audition:  short sight reading excerpt
3:15 – 3:30
&
ILMEA audition prep (optional) until 4:00

Wednesday, August 28
Chamber Strings
3:25- 4:15

Thursday, August 29
LMEA audition prep (optional)until 4:00

Friday, August 30
Dr. Istvan Szabo, viola professor at Western IL Univ. is working with 4th hour Symphonic violas on ILMEA audition excerpts.

We kick off the ABOB Fall Fundraiser Tuesday. I’ll be sending out more info in the next day or so.  

For those students auditioning for ILMEA this year, $8.00 is due by Monday, September 16.  If paying by check, please make it payable to Alton H.S.  The deadline to enter our students for auditions is earlier this year, thus the change in the audition fee due date. 

Let me know if you have any questions.
