MS Fall Concert got a little scary this past week with the annual pumpkin and 8th grade costume contest. Before the concert the High School Orchestra members served up Dominoes Pizza in a All-You-Can Eat Pizza Fundraiser.
Here are a few pictures of the event, more are loaded on out Flickr page. Link on our home page.
Congratulations to the 7th grade, 8th grade, Concert, and Chamber Orchestras on their performances at the Michigan School Band and Orchestra District 7 Orchestra Festival at Grand Haven yesterday. Each group performed for a panel of four expert adjudicators who rated the groups in the five areas of Tone, Intonation, Rhythm, Interpretation, and Technique. The middle school groups and the Chamber Orchestra earned a Superior rating and the Concert Orchestra earned an Excellent rating. Well done!!
