On December 21, 2016, the East Greenwich Hanaford/Eldredge Advanced Orchestra played in the Winter Concert at Cole Middle School.

The East Greenwich Advanced Orchestra played four different songs at the concert, Supernova, March and Cannon, Holiday Celebrations, and Jingle Bells. Janet He, who plays violin for the orchestra, said her favorite song was Holiday Celebrations because they got to wear Santa hats while playing it.

Every Tuesday, all the players in the advanced orchestra come to Hanaford Elementary for rehearsal at 7:00.

Izzy Chou, who also plays violin, says, “It is a hard commitment because of the sacrifices you have to make.”  

At rehearsal, the players practice all the songs together, with the orchestra conductor and teacher, Mrs. Lee.

Mrs. Lee conducted her first orchestra in 1993 at South Kingstown Junior High while she was a junior in college. At first, she student taught music, then she was hired at Hanaford Elementary. The orchestra was already in place there, so she took the place of the other teacher. She says her favorite part of conducting an orchestra are the concerts and watching the students growth.

Along with going to rehearsals, the players get taught separately in classes by Mrs. Lee every Tuesday or Thursday.

Janet He says that her favorite part of playing in the orchestra “Is having Mrs. Lee as a teacher and playing in a group.”
