PLU Invitational & NYC Payment

Orchestra Camp '17
Symphonic and Chamber Orchestra had a memorable weekend at Camp Burton. Both groups made progress on their fall concert repertoire, and presented a mini-concert each performing one piece. Students became acquainted through campfires, ice breakers,
and "orchestra family" activities including a special edition of Orchestra Olympics. A special thanks to our parent chaperones for spending the weekend with us, it wouldn't have been possible without Debbie Anderson, John Anderson, Lori Davis, Ed Hahne, Sean Harvey, Phyllis Rosen, Eric Sanderson, and Kelly Myers.
