Goal

Obtain funds to allow students to travel to Orlando to attend a conference and compete in a national competition. 

 

What will be done with my students

Sickles Chamber Orchestra was one of only 20 ensembles selected to compete at the American String Teacher Association (ASTA) National Orchestra Festival in Orlando in March of 2020. Students will perform for professional adjudicators and attend a session with a professional clinician to learn how they can improve their performance skills. Students will also be able to attend the ASTA convention exhibits and classes, as well as meet other string students from around the country. As high school students who are preparing to embark on the next phase of their life this event will give them an opportunity to improve their musical foundation and develop ideas for how music can be a part of their future. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will improve their performance skills and be able to improve the recognition of their program in the community and beyond. Students will be able to see the benefits of music education and the rewards of hard work and dedication.  

 

Budget Narrative

Each student registration (which includes lodging) costs $505. We have several students who cannot afford the fee (including a few on free and reduced lunch). The group is working hard on multiple fundraisers to help cover costs. Remainder of class will attend with cost covered by their individual families.
