Hello Orchestra families!
We are down to our final 14 days of the Fall Semester, and only a few days away from our Winter Concert! Here are some updates and reminders for the final few weeks before winter break.
- Symphonic and Chamber Orchestra Dress Rehearsal will be Monday, December 6th from 3:30-5:30pm. Students need to bring their uniforms to school, as we will be having photographers taking pictures during and after rehearsal for our KMEA Conference Program and the KMEA Bluegrass Music News.
- Winter Concert for all Orchestra students is Thursday, December 9th. Students need to be in the orchestra room dressed, ready to play at 5:30pm. The concert will be in the Gymnasium starting at 6:30pm. The performance is free and open to the public; masks required. The concert will feature all of the FDHS Bands, Orchestras and the CGWA World Percussion Ensemble. Students are required to stay for the duration of the concert (approximately 90 minutes or less). Students may stay after school if transportation is a concern. All students need to remember to wear their concert uniforms.
- Instruments MUST be taken home over winter break; do not leave them at school!
Also, congrats to our 5 students who were accepted into the KY All-State Orchestras! This is a huge achievement; the KY All-State Audition is harder than some college auditions! This is the most students FDHS has ever had in the All-State ensembles.
