EHS Orchestra Participates at ISU Orchestra Festival
The EHS Orchestra spent Thursday at the ISU High School Orchestra Festival. ISU conductor, Dr. Glenn Block, only invites 10 high school orchestras from across Illinois to participate every year and for the second straight year, EHS was invited.
During the day, orchestra students participated in clinics, sectionals, and masterclasses. They also got to hear the ISU symphony performance and later were able to give a concert at the Performing Arts Center to close out the day.
"It’s a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet other high school orchestra students, rehearse with them and listen to their ensembles perform," said EHS orchestra director Victoria Voumard. "Our performance last year really put Edwardsville HS Orchestra on the map, and we were looking forward to another great performance this year!"
