The string orchestra performs first. It consists of these four string instruments: violin, viola, cello, and bass. Their  performance will include two pieces Tempus Fugitive and Menuetto from Symphony No. Tempus Fugitive is the first. It is very fast-paced and exciting. Frequent dynamic changes and back and forth patterns between different parts will keep the audience engaged and awake.

The second song, Menuetto, has a more 17th century sound, with dramatic classical rhythms and tune. It is not quite as fast-paced as Tempus, but is very exciting and theatrical, despite its older

The full orchestra at Lampeter-Strasburg includes not only those in the string orchestra, but woodwinds, percussion, and brass as well. The addition of these instruments allows for a richer, fuller sound and keeps the piece alive and interesting.

Menuetto by Franz Schubert

Full orchestra will perform Lake Dance, a modern piece with catchy melodies and a delightful change in style from one page to another. From beginning to end, the audience is guaranteed to love it.

As a member of both the string and full orchestra, I enjoy concerts, as we get to perform the result of months of hard work, dedication, and practice. It will be my first concert here at L-S high school, so of course I'm a bit nervous, but overall am prepared and anxious to show what I've learned.
