The Roswell Orchestra program is off to a great start this year! We're looking forward to our Fall Concert on September 29, our annual Spooktacular with middle school students in October, and we're excited to have lots of our students preparing for Solo & Ensemble performances, and All State auditions. Watch this space for updates, and scroll to the bottom of the page to find links to our social media accounts.
We have enjoyed celebrating our amazing 45 seniors this year! We have several students going into music from this class and are so excited for all of them! Congratulations to Josh Kinoshita for receiving the National School Orchestra Award! Michael Collier, Zoe Nixon, and Josh Kinoshita received the Bobby Moody Scholarship this year to further their musical journeys in college! Congratulations to all out graduates! Roswell Orchestra will miss you!
We hope everyone had a fantastic Winter Holiday break, and is ready for a wonderful spring semester! We have a lot to prepare for this semester - hosting LGPE at Roswell, our Disney trip, and our seniors' final hurrah, just to name a few! Look for upcoming emails with information about how you can be involved, upcoming spirit nights, and more. As we start the semester in remote learning mode, it's important to keep up with your personal practice time. Also, consider a COVID test if you've been traveling, have symptoms, or know you've been exposed to someone with COVID. We look forward to seeing everyone in person next week!
Hopefully you were able to join us for the Fall Concert and see what incredible progress these student musicians have already made this year. But if you missed it, or if you loved it so much you can't wait to hear it again, enjoy the video! And feel free to share with family and friends - we're so proud of these students!
Our students are hard at work getting ready for Fall Concert, taking place September 30, 7pm, at Roswell High School Auditorium. Admission is free and open to the public, and masks are required. Take a look at these students getting ready!
It wasn't just the North Georgia Honor Orchestra this weekend - we had a Senior Trio perform at the Roswell Arts Festival, and one of our talented quartets recently provided music at Cross of Life Lutheran Church. These young musicians did a lovely job of supporting their community, and we're always looking out for student performance opportunities.
Four of our students participated in the North Georgia Honor Orchestra at Kennesaw State University Bailey School of Music last night, and it was thrilling! Check out the pictures below. After so many months of social distancing and online engagement, seeing an orchestra of this magnitude and this level of musicianship was truly incredible!
See you Monday, August 9!
