MSBOA Orchestra Festival - March 17, 2001

The String Orchestra continues to impress listneners at MSBOA Festivals. In this, their second year at Festival, the Orchestra had a very musical performance and tackled some very difficult sightreading music as well.
Final Rating: II

We are proud to announce the arrival of a new ensemble this year at RHS - the Symphony Orchestra. This group, comprised of instruments from the wind, string and percussion family, is an extension of the RHS String Orchestra program. This group performed at the Spring Concert this year and was met with enthusiastic applause and positive feedback! Hopefully, this ensemble tradition will be continued in the years to come. :)
