Due to the threat of bad weather, and the fact that all local schools have cancelled classes, we have decided to cancel this afternoon’s orchestra and ensemble rehearsals. Please come for Orchestra rehearsal on Thursday, May 1 from 4:00-4:45 p.m.
Ensemble performed at First United Methodist Church in Columbus on April 22 for the Keenager Luncheon. Pictured are (back row from left) Diane Ford, Laura Sandifer, Patti Gildea, Aidan Dunkelberg, Lucy Sandifer, Hope Bassett, Jessica Smith, (front row from left) Trudy Gildea, Jan Atkins, Cassie James, Abbey Swartzendruber, Gracie Swartzendruber, and Scott Sandifer.
The Entire First Baptist Church was filled with elementary school children from Starkville and Columbus playing recorder, singing and we played violins with the Philharmonia using Carnegie Hall Link-up curriculum. Across the country this setting is going on with participating symphonies. Group 2 violins participated from our Suzuki String Program.
