August 2018 - Orchestra News for 2018-2019

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
