MSBOA Opportunities for Orchestra:  Annual String Reading Session and Mid-Level String Clinics

Dear Orchestra Colleagues,

I hope you have had a good start to your school year.  I want to remind you of two MSBOA opportunities for Orchestra.

The first opportunity is the String Music reading session on Saturday, September 24, 2022.  We have two sites for the session:

Eastern Michigan - Plymouth Canton High School (Phase III), 8415 N. Canton Center Road, Canton, MI 48187

Western Michigan - Lowell Middle School, 750 Foreman St. SE, Lowell, MI 49058

I would encourage you to take the opportunity to network with orchestra colleagues and read/review the music that will be played through at the reading session.  Please RSVP using this google form link:  so we can be prepared for the everyone that is attending.  More information can be found with the following link:
