Dear Orchestra Members,
Below are the orchestra placements for the 2017-2018 school year. Mr. Davis and I want for you know that we put a great deal of thought in to the placements and that each of your were placed in an ensemble that will give you the most opportunity for your musical growth to shine. A few things to remember:
1) The Jasper Orchestra auditions are very competitive because of the very high quality of training you all receive at Rice and Robinson. The upside of this is that all of our orchestras are very much above average for their level and will be a rewarding musical environment for you.
2) You are so much more than simply a person in a class period. Regardless of what class you are in, take it as an opportunity to excel and distinguish yourself in a positive manner. It will pay off!
Later on next week, you will all be receiving some music from our first concert next year if you’re looking for something to practice over the summer. Have a great summer, and I can’t wait to see everyone next year!
