Dear Parents and Students,
My name is Monica Powell, a former Crozet Elementary parent, and current Henley and WAHS parent, and WeKids coordinator. In conjunction with Marco Escobar, the string orchestra conductor and teacher at Western Albemarle High School, it is our pleasure to announce WeKids string program has opened enrollment for elementary school students (4th -5th grade beginner and advanced) and Henley students (6th - 8th grade advanced only) for 2015/16.
WeKids Orchestra mission is to bring children of all cultures and backgrounds in the Western Feeder together using music education as a means to foster teamwork, develop understanding, and emphasize excellence in all they do. We have proudly served over 50 students since 2012. This is all accomplished with amazing volunteers and PTO support as well as a talented and dedicated conductor in Mr. Escobar.
Our string program offers classes in violin, viola, and cello while being part of our WeKids Elementary Orchestra. We will accept a maximum of 25 students in each orchestra class. We open the program to 4th and 5th grade students from the entire Western Feeder pattern...Brownsville, Crozet, Meriwether Lewis, and Murray Elementary Schools for the beginner or advanced program and Henley Middle School for advanced only...
