Orchestra wins big at state contest

“Thank you, everyone, for working with the Upper School Orchestra students yesterday as we attended the final portion of our State Contest,” Gary Gardner said.

The students played in two different groups, and performed music that was rated as the most difficult. Both groups got the highest ratings on stage and at sight reading. Each group, the Blue and the Orange, received a Sweeps Stakes award.

“A special thanks to Dr Windsor, a parent who accompanied us and was indispensable to our day,” Gardner said. “I would also like to thank Susan Gardner for her help as my ‘parent’ consultant to help keep me on task.”
