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.

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.
