Strings make prizes!
The Middle School Advanced Strings took 3rd place overall in the recent National Festival Orchestra Competition.
Taking place in Kansas City, Missouri, between March 15-20 this year, the competition is hosted by the American Strings Teachers Association. As well as the high placing, the Strings were also graded at ‘Excellent Level’.
In addition to the competition, students visited a factory to learn how string instruments are made, step by step. They also attended instrumental master classes, group clinics and workshops hosted by well-known musical clinicians from around the United States.
Congratulations to all who took part under the guidance of MS Strings Teacher, Rondecca Kam.
Congratulations, Middle School Strings.
