Solo & Ensemble Contest is coming up!
Solo & Ensemble contest will be held at MBHS this year on Saturday, April 16, 2016.
Students have all received a pack of solos that they may choose from however, if a student is taking lessons with a private lesson teacher we can look at other solo options.
If students plan to compete for a coveted spot on the Sweets and Strings concert to work toward one of the three MHS spots on the MISD Honors Recital, they must play a class 1 solo of the prescribed music list. The Solo & Ensemble judges will choose 10 candidates to move on to the Sweets & Strings concert/competition.
If you want to verify a solo class level, please feel free to contact Ms. Sorgi or Ms. O’Neill or you can look on the prescribed music here: http://www.utexas.edu/uil/pml/browse
Auditions are coming!
Auditions for next year’s orchestras are coming soon! We are currently working with MBHS on the audition packets since we share the same feeder middle schools. The goal is to begin auditions around April 4th. This is a month earlier than last year but will assist with the scheduling process and is a deadline set by the MHS Administration.
We are SO PROUD of the progress each student has made this year! We love seeing students work hard to reach new goals. We are very excited about UIL next week and the events yet to come this semester! Thank you for being a part of the MHS Orchestra Program.
MHS Parent Booster Meeting
When – Wednesday, March 23rd, 6:30pm
Where – MHS orchestra Room I-106
If you are interested in being a member of the MHS Booster Organization, please put this date on your calendar! If you cannot attend but are still interested, please email Ms. Sorgi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We have always had a small group of parent volunteers that have been an unofficial Booster group since our inception but now we have finally made it well over the 100 mark of students in orchestra so it is time to work on creating something more structured.
Hope to see you there!
Fawn Sorgi & Meara O’Neill
