5th and 6th Grade Band goes to the Orchestra
On March 18, the 14 students in the 5th and 6th grade bands went to the Lima Civic Center to see the Lima Area Youth Orchestra (LAYO) perform their annual Spring Children’s Concert. LAYO is comprised of over 90 students from 14 different counties around Northwest Ohio. Students are in grades 7-12 and audition in the fall to be a part of this group. LAYO works closely with the Lima Symphony Orchestra and students get hands-on training with professional musicians. This was a particularly special event for the USV band students because one of our own was performing in the group. Miriam Lee, 7th grade flute player, is a member of the USV band and is also a member of LAYO. Students enjoyed hearing the amazing works of music and are excited to have the opportunity to be a part of this group in the near future!
