Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

Let the performances begin!

Congratulations to our band, who on Saturday, performed brilliantly at the Ayala Competition!

On Wednesday evening, the 7/8 and 9-12 Orchestras plus Symphonic Winds and Percussion, will perform the Fall Concert, Forte of the Silenced. You will be amazed and proud of your children as they perform several pieces in many different styles.

I look forward to seeing you there this Wednesday evening! Have a great week!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

This weekend was a great start to the Marching Spartans’ competition season… A strong start to an already great season. I’m looking forward to the Fall Orchestra Concert this Wednesday entitled Forte of the Silenced. It is an event not to be missed!

Concerts and competitions are our time to share our music with everyone who is present and in earshot of our groups. The beauty of these events are the temporary moments that are shared by performer and audience members that bring us all together for that instant, that hopefully lingers in the mind for a lifetime. Make sure you are joining us for these special moments, they are truly a sight to behold and make life that much richer.
