The date for Group Dynamix has been set:
Monday, August 18 – Tuesday, August 19
8:00 pm – 8:00 am
As a reminder, this is a non-mandatory event at an indoor facility that produces fun, team building games that many orchestra students enjoy before the school year starts. This is a great way for current, as well as new orchestra students to get together and have fun! It is a lock-in event that requires a few parents to chaperone. Any interested parents, please contact Will Calame (email@example.com). The fee is $39 per person but chaperones are FREE!
Attached is the GDX Youth Consent form that is required of ALL participants. Those under 18 need a parent signature.
In order to reserve this date, a minimum of 25 participants is needed, as well as a deposit by August 4.
So don’t delay! We need at least 25 kids to sign up! Please print the attached form and send payment (cash or check made out to Group Dynamix) to:
1126 Stratford Drive
Richardson, TX 75080
Parents and Students,
All orchestra students are invited to attend an completely informal and TOTALLY optional after-school lunch at JC’s Burger house. It’s been an unofficial tradition to go to a burger house after the last exam and this year it’s at JC’s.
The address is: 401 West President George Bush Highway, Plano 75080 (just south of Highway 190/George Bush, between Custer and Alma). We’ll meet at 1:30pm on Thursday (tomorrow) and everyone in orchestra is invited.
Last chance to hang out before the summer (but really it’s an excuse for Mrs. Livings to have a burger.) Hope to see you there!
Attention all students,
If you use a school instrument (either at home, school or both) it must be formally checked in no later than this Friday, May 30 (even if you intend to use it over the summer).
For those wanting to check out an instrument over the summer, we will reissue them during your exam time.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this.
Hello Orchestra Family!
Parents and Students,
Orchestra/AP Music Theory
Pearce High Schoolâ€”Richardson ISD
For those students interested in getting a head start on region or those who plan on taping for All-state next year, the official etudes are now available for download on charms.
For those who will be trying out for region only: As a reminder, this is NOT the official region cut from the etudes; those are not made until August but preparing these etudes one measure at a time until then will give you a SIGNIFICANT advantage once the cuts are made.
For those who want to tape for state: These ARE the official etudes used for All-State (the level of competition that occurs after region); any student who wishes to be considered for All State should begin practicing these etudes immediately. Statewide, students are already learning them. The excerpt portion of the audition music will be released in August and you should have these learned by then. See me if you want help finding camps over the summer that can help you with this process.
Good luck and happy practicing!
Attention all students:
