EBOP Strings Opportunity

EBOP Orchestra Families,

We wanted to let you know about an exciting opportunity to attend our Annual Strings Camp at Highlands Ranch High School.
  • Friday, February 2nd from after school to 8:00pm
  • Saturday, February 3rd from 10:00am to 3:00pm
  • Any students in grades 5 - 8 who play a stringed instrument
  • Rehearsals, sectionals, a conducting workshop, performances by high school musicians, classes on how to tune your own instrument, hold your bow correctly, and how to produce a professional quality sound
  • Fun activities planned by the HRHS Orchestra Student Council such as games, races and even a tour of the school
  • Dinner will be provided Friday night, snacks will be provided throughout the camp, lunch will be provided on Saturday.
  • Final camp concert for family and friends at the close of the camp

This will be a great time for your student to learn new musical concepts on their instrument, meet other peers that play the same instrument but may be in a different class or grade, and put together a fun and challenging concert with just two days of hard work and practice.

Please see the below links for more information and registration. Thank for considering this wonderful event.
