Walk by the Orchestra room on any day of the week, and you will hear bits and pieces of the classical music practiced and perfected. What does all this practice amount to, you ask? The entire group will compete at the Kentucky Music Educators Association Festival in the spring. Individuals will also audition for seats in the All-County and All-State Orchestras, very prestigious positions in the music world.
The orchestra is not just about winning awards, however. In addition to a holiday caravan performance, a rally to celebrate the donation of food to needy families, put on by NHS – the group also entertains at their winter and spring concerts. Mr. Brian Powell, their orchestra director, will be taking the orchestra on a concert tour of New York City in May.
