UNION GROVE HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
Making Musicians, Music Lovers, and Memories
The UGHS Orchestra Merch Store will be open for the next two weeks. Items are stamped with our UG Orchestra logo as well as some with our new student design for 2023-2024.
All mainline Orchestra students will receive a white T-shirt with the new design (item #11). This is covered by their yearly dues. Please keep that in mind when making your purchases. I look forward to seeing our items across Union Grove High!
The sooner all students and families are on the Remind messaging service the better. Please input the codes below into the Remind app based on your class. PARENTS, WE WANT YOU TOO!

As students develop their schedules for the year, please consider private lessons for your students. Private instruction can help students improve rapidly and explore music they won't have opportunity to look at in my class. Follow the link below to see a list of options, or use Google to seek out opportunities!
Music, being identical with heaven, isn't a thing of
momentary thrills, or even hourly ones.
It's a condition of reality.
Gustav Holst, composer
