Orchestra Trip

November 10th, the 6th and 7th grade students will be travelling to Springfield to the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, to watch a production called “The Listener.” When asked about the trip, Mr Pluhm - the choir director exclaimed, “ I am very excited for our students to get the experience to see a live professional performance and hear these amazing musicians. It is one thing to watch a video and hear music through a speaker, but totally another to be breathing the same air as the musicians and feeling the vibrations of their instruments on your skin. I encourage all of my students to go see live music performances regardless of genre, but am secretly hoping that this trip gives my students an appreciation for classical music.”
