Electrify Your Strings

On Friday December 12, 2014 Several of our Mona Shores High School & Middle School orchestra members had the chance to participate in the Mark Wood’s Electrify Your Strings with Muskegon High School Orchestra. Mlive reports:

Wood, an original member of the Multi-Platinum-selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra and creator of the revolutionary Viper electric violin, has worked with Celine Dion, Lenny Kravitz and Billy Joel, among others.

The Friday night concert was more of a rock concert and full of energy. Vega Goorman and Jason Fitzpatrick were featured performers in a couple of songs. Jason put down his instrument to the Viper for a spin for his featured spot. Mr. Mosely even got in on the fun. Question of the night is who had more fun the audience or the players?

Here are a few shots of the fun.

2014 MSBOA Dist 7 Festival MS Results

Congratulations to our 7th and 8th grade orchestras for their performance on February 19 at the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Associations District Seven Festival in Grand Haven. Each ensemble was judged in the categories of Tone, Intonation, Rhythm, Technique, and Interpretation on three prepared pieces, and also judged on their ability to sight read, playing a piece they had not seen before.   Both groups earned an overall first division rating, meaning they had “A” grades in the categories mentioned . Great job Middle School Orchestra Students!
