CONGRATULATIONS JUNIOR ORCHESTRA for your wonderful performances during ESYO’s 85th Season!
Christopher Noel is the conductor of ESYO’s Junior Orchestra. Chris is an enthusiastic and passionate conductor and musician, and it shines through as he works with the musicians of the orchestra. His love for music, and for sharing it with young people, is easily seen as he rehearses with humor and cheer – all the while enabling students to be their best. He chooses a variety of music to both challenge and delight!
Junior Orchestra (JO) rehearsals are held Monday evenings in the Roosevelt Middle School orchestra room from 6:45 to 8:45 pm beginning September 23, 2019. IMPORTANT ENTRANCE instructions: Please go to the main parking lot on the east side of the building and walk around the back to the far door to the cafeteria/dining hall. The program fee for JO is $430 for the year, and there are several payment options, as well as scholarships available (described on registration). The JO season includes up to 30 rehearsals, sectional coaching, several education and outreach concerts, and two formal concerts – with Little Symphony in December, and JO’s final season concert in May.
Reporting Absences to Your Registrar: Janna Farrell Hudson is the JO registrar. A seasoned member of ESYO’s team, this is her fourth year as JO registrar. She has a wonderful rapport with the students and is the go-to person for anything they need. Janna’s number is 541-501-7279. You must call and leave a message if your child will be late or absent, or for any other issues regarding rehearsals. Students are expected to be there 10-15 minutes early so they are seated and ready to tune at 6:45 sharp. One week notice is required for absences. THANK YOU!
