We are still debating how many years the Fiddlers have had the honor to take the stage at the 20th Michigan Irish Music Festival. One thing we don’t debate on is “Thank You” to the entire Michigan Irish Music Fest organization for inviting the Fiddlers. To the Fiddlers it’s so much more than just a concert it’s a list of opportunities: to enjoy, to learn, and to share music that builds friendships with more than just our community. Thank you to Michigan Irish Music Festival and all the volunteers. Happy 20th Birthday MIMF and look forward to the next 20!
The Fiddlers will be hosting the 18th Annual Fiddle Fest on November 18th, 7pm, at the Mona Shores Performing Arts Center featuring the Mona Shores Middle Fiddlers, Mona Shores Fiddlers and with special guests ESME, Eclectic String Music Ensemble. We look forward to seeing you at Fiddle Fest.
Simply go to smile.amazon.com, select your favorite charity (Hopefully, the Mona Shores Orchestra Parent Association), and shop Amazon like normally do. Then Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase profit to us. Simple and easy.

Yesterday on their performances at the Michigan School Band and Orchestra District 7 Orchestra Festival at Grand Haven yesterday. They performed for a panel of four expert adjudicators who rated the groups in the five areas of Tone, Intonation, Rhythm, Interpretation, and Technique. The Concert Orchestra earned an Excellent rating.
Scheduling worked out yesterday that after the required material for the MSBOA Orchestra Festival the adjudicators came in and gratiously gave a mini session as the Chamber Orchestra as was playing their remaining pieces for their National Orchestra Festival performance this weekend.
The Chamber Orchestra is on their way now to National Orchestra Festival in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The festival is one of the many events that takes place during the American String Teachers Association’s National Conference. Fewer than thirty school orchestras from the entire country have been selected to participate this year. Our orchestra is very excited to receive this invitation to perform on a national stage!
This is an incredible opportunity for our orchestra. After the Chamber Orchestra performs, they will receive feedback from the adjudicators and work directly with one of the clinicians in a hour long workshop. Chamber Orchestra members will also have the opportunity to attend the educational sessions associated with the National Conference.
