WELCOME TO SYMPHONIC Orchestra!
Our next concert will be a FESTIVAL. Instead of traveling to MPA, we will prepare a concert, and bring in a clinician to work with our group for a day, then perform for our home audience here at Northwest. Symphonic Orchestra will welcome JIM WADDELOW. He is director of instrumental music at Meredith College and music director for both the Raleigh Symphony and the Oklahoma Haydn Festival. Read more about him HERE.
Our festival will be February 26. You will miss all classes that day, so be sure you are up to date with all work. The concert will begin at 7:00pm.
