Winter Concert Wrap-Up
I wanted to congratulate our orchestras on wonderful performances at the Winter Concert. It’s incredible to see the progress we have made this semester and I look forward to our continued growth in second semester.
Today each of the classes welcomed a guest conductor, Mr. Christopher Thibdeau. Mr. Thibdeau, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and Cleveland Institute of Music, did a wonderful job helping our student excel for their next performances.
Here are some notes for end of the semester:
Week of 12/10
During the last regular week of classes, we will spend several days reading new literature and sight-reading in preparation of our upcoming Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE) in February and will also be reviewing for our Semester 1 Final Exam.
Semester 1 Final Exam
Our semester 1 Final Exams will be 12/18-12/20 and will consist of a 100 question multiple choice exam over a variety of necessary musical terms and vocabulary.
The study guide and quizlet below will be helpful for students wishing to prepare for the exam.
