Hey, Legacy Orchestra Families! I will be holding a meeting about our upcoming 2018 tour next week October 6th, in the Legacy Orchestra Room. We'll start at 7:00 PM. I will have Door 7 open so you can come through the south entrance. If you cannot attend, I will post any updates or common questions to the Tour webpage. I will also have a summary of your son or daughter's activities account available.
Fundraising Kick-off on Wednesday, October 5th
Tom from Great American Fundraising will be at Legacy to start us on our cookie dough fundraiser. Students receive 40% of profit and more if they can sell magazine renewals, which are part of this fundraiser.
I have given students a LHS patron ticket letter, the sales of which benefit both the student and our music programs. Students who sell these tickets get a $20 kickback into their activities account. I have an outdated letter posted on my webpage, but the prices and everything else are the same. I will be honoring any ticket sales in our concert programs.
Student Activity Fees
I am still collecting student activity fees for our concert attire. Please help me by turning those in - thanks!
I will be available for conferences on Monday, Oct. 3rd, from 4:00-7:45 PM.
We are well underway to a great start to the school year! Thank you, students and parents, for making me feel welcome at Legacy. As of now, our first concert will be October 17th, 7:30 PM at Legacy, and we have some great pieces to perform.
As of now, all information on tour can be found under the Fundraising tab at the top of the website. We have a great tour planned for New York City in 2018! I will be scheduling an LHS Orchestra family meeting to discuss fundraising options and answer questions about tour. This will take place in late September, and I will let you know the date by the end of next week.
Legacy Music Boosters
The Legacy Music Boosters is an organization that supports all of the music departments at Legacy High School. If you would like to be involved in supporting our orchestra department and music at Legacy High School, please contact Summerly, president of Legacy Music Boosters.
Instruments, Uniforms, and Fees
All students have tried on uniforms and almost all were able to take them home (I have a couple of orders to make). Please have all fees paid by September 30th. This can be accomplished by bringing check or money to me (make checks to LHS), or by utilizing My Payments Plus. If you have any questions or concerns about fees, please contact me.
High School Orchestra Festival - September 30th-October 1st
Every year, the orchestra students have an opportunity to take part in the a state-wide orchestra festival, where we hone our sight-reading skills and musicality. This year's event will take place in Jamestown. Any high school orchestra student who wishes to attend can sign up with me. Because it is an overnight stay, students in the past have paid around $36 to alleviate the cost of the hotel.
All-State Orchestra Materials
The All-State Committee is in the process of finalizing the audition requirements for students, which is why I don't have anything to hand out. As soon as I have these materials, I will distribute them to students. I would suggest that those who are interested in auditioning seek supplemental time with a private lessons teacher, or schedule some Saber time with me to go over the materials. Auditions will take place between January 5th-8th, and are usually held in the music/performance hall at BSC.
