Ballard High School Chamber Orchestra is Fundraising for a trip to Tampa Bay, FL for the National Orchestra Festival
The Ballard High School Chamber Orchestra was one of ten Chamber Orchestras selected by audition to perform at the National Orchestra Festival, March 3rd - 4th, 2016, presented by the American String Teacher’s Association in Tampa Bay, Florida. While in Tampa Bay, students will be attending masterclasses, workshops and research sessions by many of the leading musicians, academics and pedagogues in strings from across the country (Berklee School of Music in Boston, Jacobs School of Music in Indiana, Northwestern University, Julliard School of Music). Students will attend the National Solo Competition and enjoy performances by the top youth soloists from across the country, as well as world renowned violinist Jeremy Kittel. This will be the first time that the Ballard Chamber Orchestra will be represented at the National Festival, and we hope to include all twenty students in this once in a lifetime experience!
The Ballard Chamber Orchestra is hard at work rehearsing, preparing and fundraising for this amazing opportunity, which includes preparing nearly an hour music for our performance, but this is where we need your assistance. The total cost of our trip to Tampa is $1,200 per student, which includes airfare, hotels, cello and bass rentals, admission to the weekend conference, breakfasts and lunches, and transportation to and from the airport. To ensure that all twenty students will be able to participate, please consider donating, whether small or large, to help support our cause. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
