    Dear OMPO Members and all Orchestra Parents,
     
     Please view Mr Prescod's fusion page via the link below to access all the information you need to know concerning the orchestra program and updates including dates for rehearsals and much more!
    *Through this link the 8 pieces chosen to be performed at the Spring Concert on May 18th can be listened to by clicking on the titles.
    It is fun to do so with your child musician to help encourage them and their hard work!!
     
     
     
     
     
    MS/HS Orchestra Rehearsals   TO BE ANNOUNCED!!!!!!!!
     
     Dear Orchestra Members,

    In preparation for the Winter Concert

    By virtue of being a member of the MS/HS Orchestra, you have placed upon yourself an obligation not only to yourself, but to the entire orchestra program. Because it is OUR desire to achieve the finest possible result, regular attendance at rehearsals by every orchestra member is of the upmost importance. Orchestra is like a ‘team’ sport – a student who doesn’t attend rehearsals on a regular basis not only doesn’t learn their part but changes the dynamic for the students who do come – making everyone have to work harder.

    It would be unrealistic to assume that exceptions, such as illness, death in the family, etc., do not occur, so emergencies will be considered exceptions. With this in mind, please make an effort to attend rehearsals regularly so that we can achieve and maintain a high level of performance.


    MS/HS Rehearsal schedule:
    October -
    November -
    December -

    PS.
     
     PLEASE attend rehearsals regularly.
