D99 / D58 String Fest Prep #99Learns #dg58learns

Nearly 150 string playing musicians from District 99 and District 58 gathered today in preparation for the upcoming String Fest.  Students gathered first in small sectional groups led by high school-aged students working on musical and technical details pertinent to the performance repertoire.  After a delicious pizza dinner, the students had a short combined rehearsal, putting together all the high school and middle school students to apply through performance the ideas and techniques learned during the sectional time.

The 2015 String Fest - "A Night At The Oscars" - will take place on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at 7:00 PM in the Clarence Johnson Auditorium of North High School.  The concert will feature string students from the District 99 Orchestra and Herrick and O'Neill Middle Schools performing classic film scores from well-known motion pictures. Admission to the concert is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend this performance.
