Welcome back to a new semester of musical growth!!
2018 Pre LGPE Camp, Jan 19, 20
Dear Lassiter Orchestra Parents,
We hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday with your family and friends!
The orchestras are now beginning preparation for their Large Group Performance Evaluations. Our students have made significant progress first semester and rehearsals this week were beyond our expectations! We believe you will be so pleased with the outstanding music-making going on in each ensemble and at such a high level. January 19th and 20th is our Winter Orchestra Camp. We have an outstanding staff lined up who will not only take our students to the next level, but will inspire them along the way. Our camps are built to provide a fast-paced yet thorough understanding of string technique coupled with building the ensemble as a musical team. Every member of each ensemble is important to our musical progress and presentation. Please contact the directors with any Winter Camp schedule conflicts at Lassiterorchestras@gmail.com.
Our Pre-LGPE performance is Thursday, February 8th at 7pm. We look forward to performing this wonderful literature for our orchestra families and friends!
