Welcome to Kingwood Middle School Orchestra!
Mr. Kenneth Hale
Room Number: 906
Office Number: (281) 641-4313
I am very proud of all the students who auditioned for Region XXXIII Orchestra this year. I know that it is a very scary process and I know that it will help them in the future. 6 KMS Orchestra students will be attending the Region XXXIII Orchestra Concert this year. That is a 200% increase from last year. Way to go Cougars!
Remember every week:
1) Practice Charts are due signed by Parents
2) Sectionals occur every week unless otherwise informed.
3) Charms Tests are posted online on Mondays. Next Test due before midnight on OCT. 19th
Friday, October 20th - Orchestra Picture Day (during the school day) - All members of the Orchestra will be present for group and individual pictures. Make sure that you have purchased you Orchestra uniforms before this date. Guys - Black-dress slacks, black sock and black shoes, Tux shirt with bow tie and cummerbund (can be obtained at Men's Wearhouse or Al's Formal Wear). Girls - Black ankle-length dress OR black knee-length dress with black leggings OR black dress slacks with black blouse. I am flexible with Girls as long as it is black...and black...
Saturday, October 21st - Fine Arts Dessert Social (5-9PM) - The Orchestras will be playing at our first concert to show our parents what we can do this early in the year. A letter will be sent home with the students that has all the information along with a volunteer form. This is the only fundraising concert that the Orchestra gives so please invite as many family members and friends as possible. Last year we raised around $1400 and I would like to beat that record! Thanks for all of your support!
Saturday, October 28th - Orchestra Spooky Party (5:30 PM - 8:30 PM) - The Philharmonic, Symphony, and Chamber Orchestras are invited to attend the SPOOKY party in the KMS Orchestra Hall. There will be pizza, games, candy, and a movie. The Orchestra Officers will make all the plans and send them to each class with what they are supposed to bring. Come join us for some Not-too-scary fun!
