Mr. Ronald DeGrandis– Guest Conductor
This year Lower Moreland School District is hosting PMEA District 11 Middle School String Fest on Friday, January 27, 2017 (snow date Friday, February 3, 2017) at Lower Moreland High School. PMEA is a nationally sponsored organization for music teachers, promoting excellence in music education. As part of their programs, they host events at all levels to honor exceptional young musicians and display their abilities and talents.
Participating students will arrive at Lower Moreland High School with their orchestra director between 11:00 and 11:45. They will then rehearse with the participating students from other school districts and the day will end with a concert for family and friends at 7:00 PM. Students should bring their own lunch but a snack and dinner will be provided. Please make sure to fill out the dietary restrictions form so I can make sure students with food allergies have appropriate food available.
Dress code for the concert is nice black bottoms and black shoes. Students will receive a String Fest shirt to wear for the concert and should come to the rehearsal already in their black pants.
