I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind. [Neil Gaiman]
Welcome back Derby Orchestra Families (and welcome to our new 6th grade orchestra musicians and parents)! I hope you all had a fabulous summer. I'm so excited to start another wonderful year of learning, string playing, and music making with our amazing student musicians. I've posted our handbook and calendar of events in this post, but you can also access them by scrolling under "PARENTS" and clicking on "Trips/Documents". Please check this blog regularly for information regarding upcoming events, performances, and ways that you can support our program. If you have not already done so, please also subscribe to my Remind app (I've posted instructions on the attached documents).
Thank you for your incredible support!
