Welcome Back

DSCN5537On behalf of Mrs. DeRose, Mr. Mosley, and the Mona Shores Orchestra Parents Association (MSOPA), Welcome Back!!! The new school year is upon us and under way with some exciting events already planned and being planned for 2016-2017.

First off, the 2016-2017 events have already begun. The Fiddlers DSCN4347have been rehearsing all summer and had a three day Fiddle Camp. They started their Summer/Fall Concerts tour this summer at the Sparta Celtic Fest, Roosevelt Park Day, and the Annual Muskegon Irish Association Dinner. The Fiddlers next concert is Sunday, Sept. 18th, 10 AM at the Michigan Irish Music Fest.

DSCN5116Thursday, October 27th, will be the 2nd Annual Spooktacular Concert. The orchestras fall concerts tackle Halloween and get a little Spooky Fun. This years concert will include the Ross Park and Churchill Elementary Traveling Choirs.

Saturday, November 15th, at 7 PM is the 15th Annual Fiddle Fest featuring the Fiddlers and the Middle Fiddles with very special guest CrossBow. CrossBow is a high energy group out of GVSU that has been tearing up the celtic festivals.

We will have more details on these events and other events as we get closer to the date. A complete calendar of events is on our event page and details of an event can typically be found on our Facebook Page.

DSCN6988As most of you already know, we are also very happy to announce that Mr. Mosley is the Full Time  Middle School’s 6th, 7th, & 8th Grade Orchestra Director. Mrs. DeRose will continue as the High School Director and assist with the 6th Grade at the middle school.

Its looking like an exciting year ahead of us. Check back here, our Facebook Page or Twitter Page for the latest news and events. We will be adding some features to the webpage that I think some of you will really like.
