Darby Orchestras eNewsletter #4, January 27, 2014

I hope all of you are staying warm and safe—winter has definitely come to Hilliard! Here are some important updates for the Darby Orchestras.

Evening Symphony Orchestra rehearsals and weather

Symphony members, several of you have asked what happens regarding our Tuesday evening clinic/rehearsal with Mr. Deliman if school is cancelled or delayed due to inclement weather. At this writing (Sunday, January 26) we are still scheduled to be “on” for our 7pm Symphony clinic on Tuesday; should there be any question, I will post here on the Darby Orchestras website, either to verify rehearsal is on or to cancel if needed (this will also post to the Darby Orchestra Facebook page). This will be the main source for information for Darby Orchestra activities, so please check back often.

Congratulations, Solo/Ensemble participants!

Last Saturday, January 18, 24 Darby Orchestra students participated in the OMEA District 15 Solo/Ensemble event at Westerville North HS. The 11 soloists and 6 ensembles all earned Superior and Excellent ratings from the adjudicators. Well done, Darby Orchestra members!

General Reminders…

Practice—all students have orchestra music and technique pieces to be working on. Violin and viola players, your instruments should go home most evenings and definitely each weekend! Cello and bass players, your orchestra music/books should also go home and you should be practicing and preparing your music as well.

Calendar—orchestra members, please remember to keep an eye on the website calendar for all upcoming events.

And, if you haven’t already done so, don’t forget to like us on Facebook!

Stay warm!
