  • Music Department News

    Students in Chorus and Orchestra recently performed in music assessments at the MCPS Chorus and Orchestra festivals on April 2 and 3.  Both groups received ratings of EXCELLENT and SUPERIOR.  The Superior ratings were earned for music reading and performance skills.  In this task, students were given 2 minutes of silent study and then were graded on their ability to sing or play what they read with the most accuracy possible.  Congratulations to all the musicians involved!!  Also, please congratulate the Advanced Band students.  Today ,they earned a SUPERIOR rating from judges at the band festival.  Their concentration and team work was amazing and they represented themselves and Forest Oak at the highest levels personally and musically.  We are very proud of the band, orchestra and chorus students for their recent performances!The May 3 trip to Kings Dominion is full!  Parents and students, stay tuned for an updated itinerary and trip details.   May 21 is the Spring Choral Music Concert and May 22 is the Spring Instrumental Music Concert.  The concert is free and open to everyone.
