Please check schoology for all further updates. From this point on all updates will be on the schoology page.

Chicago Civic Orchestra

If you have a few minutes check out the video in the link above. This is a video my brother produced for the Chicago Civic Orchestra. The video shows the orchestra playing a piece that everyone recorded  by themselves at their homes, then it was put together.  This is kind of like the Blinded Lights project just with more people and video. Our project is just four parts and at the moment we are not using video, but if things go well maybe we could add video too. Check out the link.

Blinding Lights Project

I hope everyone is doing well. I have been working on a few things for everyone and the first one is ready.

If you go to schoology you will see a new project listed called "Blinding Lights Project Part 1"

There are directions and a short video in schoology to get you started.

This will be a fun activity and I hope you will find it enjoyable.

I know that many of you do not have your instruments at home with you, but if you do please take some time to play your music between now and when we start classes again. The plan is to still have our regularly scheduled concert in June.

SoundTrap Project

Since we are all home and can't make music together in person I'm setting up a virtual recording studio. If you would like to make music with your friends from band try using SoundTrap.

Hershey Park Trip

posted Mar 27, 2020, 11:14 AM by Kevin B

The Hershey Park trip is a wait and see. We will still go if the current heath issues clear up in time to collect payments and plan the trip. If that is not possible the trip will be cancelled.
