Way to Play, Senior Symphony!

Dear Senior Symphony,

I hope you are having a wonderful week after such a great concert! Congratulations to all of you, and thank you for all you did to make Saturday so incredible.

I am very proud of you, and I just love being your conductor!

So, even more good news! Yes, it’s true, if you haven’t heard, we won the pizza party!  I think we’ll do this around the holidays, right?

Anyway, I hope you have a GREAT week.  Give a listen to our music (below) which you’ll be getting soon—that Villa-Lobos is going to be super fun.

More soon!
