We were so excited to have 65 students participate in our summer camp this year! We had excellent conductors and coaches working with these students. A special shout out to the parents who helped with snacks, you are awesome!
The Crescendo Orchestra met for an hour each day, and Ms. Britt did a wonderful job teaching these beginning students to play as an ensemble . There were many smiles at their "Informance" Friday morning, from both students and audience. It was a joy to see them make music and to see the pride on their faces!
Ms. Britt also taught the Allegretto group. These very talented students learned several new pieces together and they performed for us Friday with the two older groups. It was especially fun to see these students at their enrichment fiddle activity on Thursday. Wow! Can they fiddle! That was a great session for all the groups.
Concertante learned some very advanced music and performed beautifully for us! It is wonderful to see how they progress during the week and it will be great to see them work as a musical team this Fall! Thank you Ms. Plaxico for your fantastic leadership!
Our Junior Sinfonia and Sinfonia Orchestras joined forces to create a very advanced summer group! These students worked hard under the direction of guest conductor Fagner Rocha from Angelo State. The students were fully engaged in learning from Mr. Rocha and they learned many things including how to make a musical performance! Much progress was made and beautiful music was performed! What a joy to hear young people playing at such a professional level!
Our enrichment activities Thursday afternoon were so much fun! In addition to our guest fiddle player, Ms. Britt did a care and maintenance session and an Instrument Petting Zoo for the younger students to try other stringed instruments. We thank our intern Mariah Ramirez for her help with the session.
We are so proud of our 2019 Camp!
