The Harrison Orchestra will be taking a field trip to the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta on Thursday November 15, 2018 to observe a live rehearsal of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Students will be observing the rehearsal skills and techniques used at the highest levels of our craft by observing one of the best orchestras in our country.
The cost is $10 per student and transportation will be covered by the Harrison Orchestra Boosters. Students will need to bring money for lunch as we will be stopping for lunch before returning to Harrison. The orchestra will depart from Harrison before school begins and will return by the end of the school day. All orchestra students in good standing are encouraged to go on this wonderful opportunity. Students must turn in the ASO Field Trip Permission Form in order to go on this field trip. The $10 (payable to HOB, Inc.) can be turned into the black collection box in the orchestra room. Please write your name and “ASO Field Trip” on the envelope.

We are kicking off a new fundraiser called Snap! Raise. Snap! Raise is an online donation platform that encourages tax deductible donations for our student’s fans. There is no selling of products involved. However, we are asking each orchestra student to make a list of 20 email addresses of their “fans” who will consider supporting them. Fans are typically family and family friends who may or may not live in this area. The focus is for each student to sit with their parent(s)/guardian(s) and come up with 20 email contacts of fans/supporters who might consider supporting them in any amount. No amount is too small. More details can be found here
Our Fall Concert is on October 15. The turn-around time for the uniform could take several weeks so it is recommended to order the uniform as soon as possible so that you will have time to make any alterations before the first concert on October 15.All students have a “Uniform Assignment” which will entail them wearing their full uniform with shoes and holding their instrument in their correct playing posture. Please help them take their photo (on their device will work fine) and they should bring it to class for their uniform assignment. Hair should be pulled away from the face.Returning orchestra students should check the status of their uniform to ensure that they have located all parts of their uniform and to ensure that their uniform still fits.Information on How to Order the uniform (and specific parts) can be found below. Once your uniform arrives, please have your student try it on and move in it as though they are playing their instrument. It may need to be adjusted/hemmed by a tailor.
Shoes/Undergarments: All students should wear appropriate black undergarments under their uniform. Black, closed toed dress shoes and socks are the standard uniform. Black, close toed flats are recommended for the ladies.
