Orchestra – Virtual Options

LISD has added virtual learning course options for all Performing Arts programs.

You have the opportunity to amend your survey response and course requests through August 5th.

Please note that there will be a limited number of course offerings, as it is not possible to replicate all of the specialized and leveled options afforded through in person learning.  We will make every effort to maintain instructional delivery plans within clusters, as our performing arts curriculum is cluster-based.

Virtual instruction will include a combination of remote, synchronous delivery and asynchronous practice and assignment completion by virtual track students.  Families should be aware that their synchronous virtual learning experiences may not be with their current director at their campus, although we will be able to maintain direct connectivity through student access to program enrichment materials in CANVAS.

The list of virtual course offerings will be updated to include the following performing arts courses:

Middle School (Note – 6th grade beginning performing arts are already offered virtually):

  • Band Middle School Intermediate; Band Middle School Advanced
  • Choir Middle School Intermediate; Choir Middle School Advanced
  • Orchestra Middle School Intermediate; Orchestra Middle School Advanced
  • Theatre Middle School Intermediate; Theatre Middle School Advanced

High School:

  • Band High School Intermediate; Band High School Advanced; Percussion; Color Guard
  • Choir High School Intermediate; Choir High School Advanced
  • Dance High School Intermediate; Dance High School Advanced
  • Orchestra High School Intermediate; Orchestra High School Advanced
  • Theatre High School Intermediate; Theatre High School Advanced; Theatre High School Technical

 

Things to consider:

  • As per TEA guidance for the 2020-21 school year, families will have the option to reconsider their learning plan preferences each 9 weeks.
  • Colleges and universities are well aware of the conditions affecting opportunities in the performing arts, and they are contending with the same issues for their prospective graduates.  We encourage individual skill development and preparation, focusing upon what students CAN do.
  • Virtual track students MAY participate in extra-curricular components of their respective programs in accordance with modified UIL guidelines this school year.

The Finish Line

Dear Hawks,

Well it’s been a strange journey but we’ve crossed the finish line. I am so proud of our students and I hope we can come back better than ever next year. I’m sad we missed out on many of our spring events, but I challenge our students to cherish everything we did this year, and throughout all of the years they’ve played in orchestra. We all decide what music means to us in our lives, and as our seniors move on I hope that music doesn’t become a part of their past, but continues to be in their lives in different ways.

Our orchestra wouldn’t be successful without you! I want to thank you all for helping us put together our program. We didn’t know it then, but we ended our performance year with three superior UIL sweepstakes – an incredible recognition by the state that takes many dedicated people to accomplish year in and year out. Special thanks to our wonderful booster club officers, parent volunteers, student leadership team, Hebron admin, middle school directors, and private lesson teachers. Thank you to all of our parents! You were your student’s first teacher, and maybe some of you weren’t expecting to revisit that this spring. 🙂

Trip Reimbursement

For those of you who were planning on going on the spring trip, US Integrity Tours has issued an 85% refund to you on the original ticket price. Please fill out this form in order to choose your refund options.

The trip reimbursement will be held by the booster club until a refund option is selected.

Uniform Return

If you missed the scheduled uniform return it’s ok. Please hold the uniform for the summer and return it to the orchestra when it is declared safe to do so.

Solo & Ensemble

Our Solo & Ensemble Festival took on a new format, among the many curveballs we were thrown. Many of our students were still able to prepare a superior performance for their solo & ensemble project. Typically only one solo and one ensemble performance is recognized in each festival room as one of the outstanding performances of the day between all orchestra students in the district. In lieu of this I would like to recognize the following students for their Outstanding Solo & Ensemble recordings:

(In alphabetical order)
Kessa Dryburgh
Grace Ebbinghouse
John Hwang
Elli Kim
Ke’Juan Thompson
Alice Wei

I hope you all have a wonderful summer, stay safe and healthy, and I’ll be looking forward to us having another fantastic orchestra next year!
