Orchestra offers music lessons at lunch

Cara Helton and Exa Nix

Orchestra students spent a week filling the commons with music. Their goal was to teach as many students as they could how to play an orchestra instrument. In the end, they hoped they inspired some new students to join the program.

New orchestra director Evan Farmer said they will be adding an introductory orchestra class to the campus next year and they are hoping to find some new musicians to help make it successful. Kingwood Park will be the first campus in the district to offer such a course in orchestra. Watch the video to learn more about their recruiting efforts.
