Orchesta performs winter concert

The Jordan Creek fifth- and sixth-grade orchestra students, under the direction of Matthew Meyer, performed their winter concert in the new Performing Arts Center at Valley High School earlier this month. The concert showcased nearly 300 students from across the district. The sixth-grade performance was highlighted by “Sweet Petite Winter Suite” by Brian Balmages. The suite pays tribute to favorite winter treats such as candy canes, peppermint bark and gingerbread men. The fifth-grade performance was highlighted by a terrific rendition of “Dragon Slayer” written by Rob Grice. All of the students worked really hard this past fall to prepare for this concert. The concert was a huge success in front of a capacity audience at the Performing Arts Center.  Kudos to the Jordan Creek orchestra students.
