Pre-Assessment Concert Tonight, Thursday, February 27th

I cordially invite you all to our Pre-Assessment Concert tonight at 7pm in the Auditorium! It will feature the J.E.B. Stuart Area Orchestra (kids in elementary school), the Glasgow Middle School orchestras, and the J.E.B. Stuart High School orchestras. It is wonderful to be able to have all of these musicians together on one night!

High School students are asked to be here no later than 6pm and to bring cookies or juice to share afterwards at the reception.

The students have worked VERY hard for this concert and have really risen to the occasion – we missed a lot of rehearsal time due to Mother Nature this year, but the kids have pushed that aside and just “got to work”. They take pride in the fact that the J.E.B. Stuart HS pyramid has such strong music departments and have been assessed at “excellent” and “superior” ratings at the VBODA Assessments each year.

This concert gives us a chance to perform our repertoire before we go and be assessed next week. We will also have some “mock judges” in attendance who are some music colleagues and orchestra directors from around the county. If you see them, please tell them thank you as they have graciously volunteered to come and give us this valuable feedback.

Concert starts at 7pm – hope to see you all there!
