Polytechnic Junior Orchestra Goes to Southern California Band & Orchestra Association Festival



Fifth-graders in Polytechnic Junior Orchestra recently represented Poly at a regional festival sponsored by the Southern California Band and Orchestra Association. Held at La Canada High School, the festival gave the young musicians an opportunity to prepare and perform three concert pieces, for which they received an Excellent rating from each of the three judges. Along with written comments as well as recorded ratings from the judges, the orchestra also participated in the most nerve-wracking component of the festival – sightreading.

For this event, the students were given music they had never seen before and were required to play the entire piece with no practice at all. Bravo, Junior Orchestra!
