    This combined 5th grade band/orchestra concert is a wonderful showcase of the progress students have made since starting their instruments earlier in the year. Students have the opportunity to participate in small group solos, and several combined pieces are performed. Student attendance at this concert is very important. Students love this one and only combined concert of the year!






    Thursday, May 31, 2018 – 7:00 pm, High School Gymnasium


    This final performance of the year features 5-12 grade orchestra students. For many students, it is the favorite concert of the year because it culminates with the entire orchestra department (all students grades 5-12) performing a combined finale piece. Students also have the opportunity to memorize and "pass" song levels to showcase their individual skills. It is an exciting final event!
