Well, it really does rain in Southern California… Sadly, last Thursday, the Orchestra was “rained out” of our Disneyland performance. Getting to spend the whole day at the park was a treat, though! A big thank you to our intrepid chaperones, Julia Dixon, Julia Jiao, and Yvonne Lim! Thank you to Robert and Brandon Torres for helping with the truck and the gear! And of course, thank you to Jason Stone who does all the paperwork and planning for this trip!

This week is a very big week! On Wednesday, after school, we will listen to students audition for our annual Concerto Concert in May. Good luck to each one of you! Then Friday, after school, up the mountain we go to our Winter Retreat! Please sign up to bring snacks for the students. They get so hungry and your snack donations really keep them going!

There is lots of great music to learn for the Dinner Show and Festival performances. Add to that our Chamber Music program and the STEP ensemble, “Camerata La Canada,” and we are full steam ahead! I hope everyone has a terrific week!
