Over the last few weeks students from all over the South Central Region of Virginia, which stretches from Richmond to Bristol, have submitted their audition tapes with the hopes of being named a member of the 2020 Senior Regional Orchestra.  This year, Senior Maggie Russell (Trombone) and Sophomore Hailee Perdue (French Horn) were both honored with this selection.  Congratulations to Maggie and Hailee on this incredible accomplishment.

What does your art mean to you?

"Music is a way to express oneself that goes far beyond words. A true master of melody and rhythm can weave pieces that can amplify emotion and inspire greatness. Music is an expression of the heart and is guided by the mind."

 

Favorite opportunity given by participating in your arts program:

"My favorite opportunity given to me by the Fine Arts Program would be the enhanced ability to define and express myself."

 

Post graduation plans:

" After High School my plans shift to college and software development; however, I will continue to keep music as a part of my life and continue to hone my skills"

 

 

 

 

Band Members and Parents,
     I would like to follow up on Monday's email regarding our plans to move ahead with the 2020 marching band season. The July 20 date that was given to me was TENTATIVE and due to unforeseen circumstances we have not been approved to resume activities next week.
     Please do complete the informational survey so we can continue to make plans to proceed with the outdoor season once we are permitted to do so. I apologize for any confusion that might have come as a result of my previous email. 
     Additionally, we will be putting a hold on all summer session video lessons until further notice. As soon as I have more information about what comes next for us, I will be sure to let you know.
 
Stay safe,
Mr. Doss
