On Saturday, December 8th, Barnes and Noble hosted an all day fundraising event for Highland Park Raider Orchestra. Patrons walked into a bookstore filled with lively music resonating from the second floor where orchestra students performed in various ensembles (duet, trio, quartet, quintet) playing christmas songs and short solo pieces from their repertoire. We had students from Zhen Music perform as well. Guests were reminded to mention Raider Orchestra at checkout, and were also provided gift wrapping services.
Thank you to our parents for bringing their children to this event, for the students who took time to perform, for the Raider Orchestra Board especially Anna Young (our Development Officer) for putting this together, and to our Music Director, Ms. Sarah Willson, who led the students throughout the day!
