During the course of the school year (2017-2018), a few of the talented HPMS Orchestra students committed every Thursday mornings to participate in an ensemble led by Ms Louise Rossi, Orchestra Director.
Like any extracurricular activity, these students spent hours outside of their classroom with the purpose of preparing and extending rehearsal time to perform at various scheduled functions. But beyond this purpose, due to the sheer smaller size of the group, students developed a shared musical experience and a close social bond – a valued experience for all.
The ensemble performed at the following events:
Each of the students was presented with a $20 Yumilicious Giftcard sponsored by the Raider Orchestra Booster Club and Yumilicious.
Bravo, HPMS Ensemble!
