DeLong Orchestra

 

Orchestra concert dates for the 2019-20 school year:

    December 10, 2019 and May 19, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium

Students should have the following supplies for orchestra:

Essential Elements 2000 Book 1 for 6th grade, Book 2 for 7th and 8th  grade
Instrument, bow, and case
Rosin
Cleaning cloth
Pencil
Rockstop for cellos
Shoulder rest for violins/violas
Optional: Extra set of strings, Folding music stand (These are nice for home practice.)

Grading in orchestra is based on Participation, Practice, and Performance.

Participation: Students are expected to bring their instrument, orchestra folder(provided), music book, pencil, and planner to orchestra every day and show their best effort.

Practice: Frequent practice is necessary for success! Violins and violas should be taken home daily. Find a place where you can practice at home. Set up a routine. It is better to practice in small 15-20 minute sessions every day than it is to practice for a large 2 hour session on one day. Start with a scale, move to music you need to work on, then finish with a favorite song. Practice charts have a list of assignments to be checked off, and should be turned in weekly.

Performance: In addition to regular playing tests, we have two required evening concerts and a solo contest. Some students also choose to participate in the Elementary Tour, the DeLong Variety Show, and the State Middle Level Honors Auditions. Concert dress includes orchestra t-shirt (purchased at school), black pants or black skirt, black socks, and black shoes.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns!
