The orchestra students get to display their hard work and talent in a chamber group concert on March 16.
The chamber group concert is a bit different because students get to pick their own small groups with only one to two people on each part, and there is not a conductor to lead them.
A lot of students benefit from this concert experience because it takes more work and dedication since it is a smaller group of people.
Sophomore Michaela Elsen thinks the concert is a great learning experience for all of the students.
“[This concert] gives a chance for us to realize their potential,” said Elsen. “We can’t hide behind a whole section, so we really need to make our own part great.”
Students have been taking the initiative to make sure that their music is coming together nicely as the concert date approaches.
Freshman Lindsey Snyder explains the tactics she’s using to make sure her group is making progress.
“I’ve been getting together with my group at least once a week,” said Snyder. “We’re trying to get in a lot of practice… We have coachings with Mr. Levi to make sure our group is headed in the right direction.”
This concert is a lot more independent than most others, which is why it is a favorite for most of the students.
Sophomore Lucy Curran enjoys the freedom of this concert.
“I’m excited for this concert,” said Curran. “I like that we get to pick the music and our groups.”
This concert is a really fun experience with a lot of variety, so make sure to come out and support the orchestra on March 16 at 7 pm.
