APA Orchestra- 3/11-16


We have a busy week ahead, especially with all of our music programs across OMG reaching competition season. Please note a few adjusted times (especially for the Advanced Orchestra rehearsals and the Chamber Orchestra on Thursday (earlier time). This adjustment is to ensure that each student still has ensemble rehearsal time this week, even with limited hours due to the tech rehearsal schedule of the Pit Orchestra.

All of the students are working incredibly diligently, and I encourage everyone to come support the performers at one of our upcoming musicals and the festival performance at Segerstrom!
