Orchestra updates 1/17/2020

Happy Friday, Orchestra Family! Lots of news! 

EMAIL BLOCKING ISSUES CONTINUE

Due to the Hotmail/Live/MSN email blocking issue we are going to continue putting our weekly updates on Facebook, our website and also emailing through Canvas in addition to HAC.  This means that anyone who emails us through those domains will not receive a reply from us because the problem is apparently on Microsoft’s end. We reply, but the message bounces back to us as undeliverable.  MISD is still working to resolve the problem, but we have no idea when it will be fixed.  

PLAY-A-THON JANUARY 25TH 9AM-12PM

Information about the Play-A-Thon came home this week.  This is our annual fundraiser that benefits our Booster Club scholarship fund.  This fund is used by several of our CMS students, and also MNHS as well. You can find the flyer HERE or ask your student to give your their hard copy from their binder.  Older students are performing in their ensembles, and those performance times were given in class this week.  Beginners are playing their solo material as large groups as well, and those performance times were given in class.  This is a summative grade and all students are required to attend.  

SOLO AND ENSEMBLE CONTEST 2/1 AT FAUBION MS

The beginner solo and upper level ensemble contest is on Saturday, February 1st at Faubion Middle School.  A schedule should hopefully be done by late next week, as this is a district-wide event.  

CONCERT VIDEOS ARE AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME

Earlier this week information regarding the Mark Wood DVD went home.  All orders are due 1/31 there will be no late orders accepted. The beginner winter concert information is available HERE.  The beginner videos are only available through next week, so if you want to buy one don’t wait!  

That’s all for now.  Have a great 3 day weekend!
