We are set for a groundbreaking year for MHS Orchestra! The most exciting thing is that we have added an orchestra, bringing us up to 3 orchestras with almost 120 musicians enrolled.
We will have some terrific musical guests this year, including some names not yet released.
Nathan Giglierano is returning to perform Vivaldi's "Spring" both here and on the Spring Break tour to Portugal & Spain.
November brings our regular concerts, featuring all 3 orchestras. Philomusica is taking part in a new event in January: the Winter Festival will have Philo performing side-by-side with 5th and 6th-grade musicians from the district.
Solo & Ensemble is early this year, coming on February 9.
Eine Kleine Kindermusik, the Concerto Showcase, and The Orchestra Demonstration of Creativity are all back in March, and our final concerts come in May.
We get a student teacher in the Spring--keep an eye out for more details.
Finally, the repertoire this year includes some incredible works by such composers as Tchaikovsky, Rutter, Bizet, Schubert, Holst, Meyer, Stravinsky, and Shostakovich.
I hope you are your families are looking forward to it all as much as I am!
Mr. Steve Kurr
