Congratulations to Sonia B., Ellie L., Alexis S., Lisa T., Trinity C., Jared C., and Jasmine G. on a beautiful string quartet concert yesterday. Congratulations and thank you to their wonderful coach, Emily Gregg, for guiding and teaching them! This is such a wonderful way to experience some of the most beautiful music ever written.

Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

On NPR this week, I heard about a world-wide tour that Yo-Yo Ma is undertaking. In each city he is playing a concert of all six Bach Solo Cello Suites. Recently, he played in Mexico. In between the fourth and fifth suite, he spoke to the audience and dedicated the performance of the fifth suite to the “disappeared” people in Mexico.

An audience member, who was a musician, spoke about how meaningful this was to him and everyone. He said that, as a musician, he tries to play his best, but Yo-Yo Ma’s dedication brought the performance to another very deep level.

As musicians, we strive to become better and better at our instrument. We all have the ability to do well, we also have the ability to make meaningful connections through our music. Have a wonderful week.

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

Sleep is amazing! I’m so ready to come back and tackle the final leg of the school year. Congratulations to our amazing guard for being the best representation for La Cañada High School competing in the World Championships in Dayton, Ohio. They were amazing in every way imaginable! Check them out this Saturday for our So Cal Championship weekend. Looking forward to the end of year events and music making. See you all soon!
