2009/2010 School Year

This year presents another exciting "first" for the HB Orchestra.  On Saturday, Feb. 27, 8am-4pm Hathaway Brown will host the Greater Cleveland High School Solo and Ensemble Festival.  This festival consists of high school soloists and small ensembles from throughout the Greater Cleveland area, all performing for outstanding artists/judges right here at HB.  In order to make this event a complete success, we need your help.  Any parents and students who would like to volunteer please contact: Event Info Booth and Room Monitor Team Leader: Patty Roberts (pattyroberts@yahoo.com);  Festival Score Runner and Score Posting Team Leader:  Bunny Bennett (bunzo1961@oh.rr.com); Refreshments Team Leader:  Kelli Thomas (kctshaker@wowway.com).

     Our orchestral year will include all our favorites:  Meet the Instruments Night, Winter Concert, Spring Concert and our Summer Soiree.  This past year we found our community service tour days to be so incredibly fulfilling that we will again enjoy our Upper School Tour Day with the Ohio State School for the Blind, and our Middle School Tour Day with the Sunbeam School.  We will continue to offer our Suzuki program for grades K-3 and our musical arts private lessons for grades 3-12.  Hold on to your hats for another exciting year with your HB Orchestra!
