Our annual Sweets and Strings concert will be held on December 5, 2017 featuring orchestras from Parkhill Junior High, North Junior High and Pearce. This event features a variety of sweets, a silent auction, and a night filled with fabulous music. The festivities begin at 6:30pm.
We rely on the donations raised during this event to support the orchestra operating budgets at all three schools. One of the primary fundraisers is the annual silent auction. Please consider a donation of an item or gift certificate for PAOC to auction at the event. Click here for information about the auction and download the donation form.
Please join us on December 5 for an incredible night. Thank you for supporting our orchestras!
Congratulations to the 19 students who were selected to the 2017 All-Region Orchestra. We had the most students selected of ANY high school in RISD and the highest number in our region from a regular high school (non-Fine Arts magnet). It’s a wonderful assortment of 9-12 grade and bodes well for the continued success of our program. The music for these is VERY difficult and only a handful of students are even qualified to attempt it.
Top Row: Darren C (1st chair-highest ranked) and Sung J
Second Row: James K (1st chair, 2nd violin), Hongyi Z, and Wilson P
Third Row: Kameel D, Bryan P, Dingjing Z and Alice C
Fourth Row: Yiru O, Jack P, Barbara B and Andrew B (1st chair-highest rank)
Fifth Row: Miriam S, Erin S (alternate), Aaron B, Jacob A and Charlie B
Officer Elections If you are service-oriented, looking for a way to help the orchestra or just eager to make a difference, we would like you to consider running for our 2017-2018 Orchestra Council. It’s fun, an excellent way to meet people and has the added bonus of looking great on your resume. All students in each of the three orchestras are welcome to apply (9th grade too–that’s why we wait until the Fall!)
