Herricks HS Chamber Orchestra:
Just like your English classes, Chamber Orchestra requires a Summer Reading Assignment. In June, you received copies of pieces for you to take home and practice over the summer so that you are prepared for immediate music-making in September.
Utilize the parts, the metronome markings, and the YouTube URLs listed in your packet to help you in your learning.
Playing tests will be held on this repertoire during the first week of school.
This test will count toward your 1st quarter grade. It will not affect seating.
Please remember, Chamber Orchestra is an Honors level course, and that means each student is expected to do honors level work. If everyone comes to school prepared with their summer assignment, it will be much easier for us to start creating the subtle, mature, and refined sound that we are always seeking….the FUN part!
