More than just art and music…
A Celebration of Creativity and Expression through Music and Art
In addition, to all of the wonderful art, we are extremely excited, honored, and proud to introduce the debut performance of the inaugural Dorris Place Student Strings Orchestra. After countless and tireless hours of fund raising, grant writing, community building, and hours of music lessons and rehersals with our dedicated musical education partners ETM-LA (Education Through Music – Los Angeles) we will be ending the school year on a high note with a wonderful celebratory concert. The special musical concert will include performances by:
– Student String Orchestra (violins and cellos) – 4th, 5th and 6th Graders led by ETM-LA
– Recorder Brigade (recorder instruments) – 3rd graders led by ETM-LA
– The Flute Club – mixed grades lead by Ms. Marsh
– The Choir Club – mixed grades lead by Ms. Gordon
The video slide show tells the story of how Dorris Place Elementary School got it’s musical instrument program (back).
