1st and 2nd period orchestra classes are beginning preparations for a fantastic fall concert! 1st period is rehearsing a Looney Tunes Medley and a fun piece that features our bass and cello section. 2nd period is rehearsing music from Pirates of the Caribbean and a super cool version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. The classes will perform a piece together also. Both classes are working on intonation (playing in tune!) and keeping a steady beat. Our fall concert will be on Thursday October 17th at 7:00 p.m. We will have two rehearsals prior to the concert, after school on October 9th and October 16th. Encourage your child to play for you at home so that you can hear their progress!

Welcome back to school! I am looking forward to a great year for the string program at Batchelor. This year we have two orchestra classes! We will perform separately and together at concerts and performances this year. I am putting together our rehearsal/performance schedule and will send that home next week. A link to the schedule will be posted on this website and I will also add the dates to the Batchelor Orchestra Calendar, found at the end of this page.
