Thank You

Thanks to all of the students and families that came to our Saturday, May 5 performances at the Bazaar.  I know it is a busy time of year for everyone.  Thank you also to the older orchestra students that helped out by performing with the younger classes.  This made it possible for some of the groups to be able to perform and have a positive experience.   Intermediate Orchestra only had 4 students in attendance and the Beginner Band and Intermediate Band had to cancel because of low attendance.
