Elementary Music Festival 2009

Here are some photos from the final rehearsal for my district’s Elementary Music Festival Concert.

The concert included performances by the String Ensemble (about 200 students), the Flutophones (400+ students), the Honor Orchestra (150 students), and the Honor Choir (200+ students).

The Honor Orchestra is an audition-only group made up of students throughout the district. Each piece is rehearsed and conducted by a different music teacher.

The String Ensemble is made up of beginning and second-year string players who are selected by their music teachers. Students are typically in String Ensemble for one or two years before participating in Honor Orchestra.

The district rents our local arena for the concert. Both the stage and the audience seating were packed!

The Honor Orchestra. Yours truly conducting.
