Stringsation! Information

ABOB Stringsation! District Orchestra Festival
Thursday, March 23
Alton H.S. Gym

The annual ABOB Stringsation! District Orchestra Festival will take place Thursday, March 23 at 7:00pm in the Alton High School Gym.   Around 200 4th and 5th graders in our the district will perform followed the 5th Grade Honors Orchestra, the AMS 6th Grade Orchestra, the AMS 7/8 Grade Orchestra and the Alton High School Orchestra.   We will end the concert with a Grand Finale of everyone playing “Ode to Joy”.   All students are expected to stay for the entire concert which lasts about 45 minutes.

The students should dress nice for the concert and arrive by 6:30pm.   The entrance to the Alton H.S. gym is on the left or south side of the school, across from the baseball/softball fields.  Upon their arrival in the gym the students should unpack, get tuned and get seated.   We could use a few parents to sit by the kids during the concert to help with “crowd control” while the AMS and AHS orchestras perform.  Let me know if you’re interested in helping out.

Stringsation! is one of our two performances this spring.  We will also have our North Elementary Spring Band, Choir and Orchestra Concert on Monday, May 15 at 7:00 pm in the gym.
