Our two orchestras performed in the Region Orchestra Festival yesterday at Salem Hills High School.
The Concert Orchestra played well and received three scores: One Superior (I-) and Two Excellent (II+, II+). The Chamber Orchestra also played very well and received three superior ratings (I, I, I), which qualifies them for state. The judges complimented them highly-one saying that if he were allowed to do so, he would have given them a I+ (a "I" is the highest score possible). The second judge said it was a "stellar" performance from start to finish, and the third described it with "Bravo!"
The students have worked very hard, and I'm very, very proud of them. As we all know, we have great students at MMHS, and I'm grateful I have the opportunity to work with the orchestra students. They are truly awesome people.Thank you for your support of these kids and our orchestra program!
