Spring Concert Wrap-Up
Words can hardly express my feelings for our Spring Pops concert this week. Every orchestra performed extremely well, and I am very proud of all of the students. I was impressed with the level of improvement of each orchestra over the course of this school year – remarkable!
Seniors – your solo performances were outstanding! I hope it was the experience you were expecting. We will miss you all next year!
Special thanks to the AHSOA Board for their work in setting up the fabulous student dinner and Concert Cafe. Also, many thanks to all the parents who donated items to sell.
It has been a fantastic year indeed!
Photo & Video Media Needed!
Parents — if you captured photos or videos, please share them with me via Google Drive, Dropbox, or other means. I would like to have a collection of media to use for promotional purposes and for our photo slide show.
You can share them with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
On Monday, May 1 the AHSO will host a presentation by Emily Dixon from Beau Vinci Violins. Ms. Dixon will discuss instrument construction, choosing the right instrument and bow, and will have some samples available for students to try out.
