My oldest daughter has been playing the violin for almost two years now. She started in fourth grade with her school’s music program. A few months ago she auditioned for the honor orchestra and low and behold she made it! I feel very lucky that her school district has such an incredible music program and they hold the arts at such a high value, especially when the arts are getting cut out of most schools these days. She has rehearsed for almost two months with the honor orchestra group and it culminates with a program called Stairway to the Stars. The honor orchestra is made up of students from all of the elementary schools in the district. There is also honor band and choir. There are elementary groups, middle school groups and high school groups. It was an amazing performance! We were so proud and grateful!
