This year, I asked the orchestra students if they would be interested in adopting a family (through Tosa Cares) as an orchestra program wide service project. Two of our students, Megan Stoffel and Alex Lee, took on leadership roles. They addressed the audience at our winter concert, and we were able to raise over $300 with which to buy requested items! Also, various audience members and orchestra families volunteered to bring in certain items. I am proud that our orchestra community was able to do this, and I hope that this becomes a winter concert tradition.
Our next Wauwatosa West Orchestra Parent Association meeting will be on Thursday, January 8th, 2015, at 7:30 PM. The meeting will take place in the orchestra room. Hope to see you there!
