District 99 Orchestra Spring Concert

Congratulations to the students and staff affiliated with the District 99 Orchestra for presenting a tremendous Spring Concert this evening.  Concert Orchestra and Symphonic Orchestra both performed with elegance and artistry.

Kudos and congratulations to guest conductor Craig Roselieb who will retire from teaching at South High School at the end of this year.  Mr. Roselieb worked to prepare the D99 Orchestra for the performance this evening, and, has long been an avid supporter of the students in the orchestra program.  The orchestra sounded wonderful during the performance of the "Les Preludes" by Franz Liszt - bravo!

Special shout out also goes to senior soloists Nicolette Cheaure, viola, and Bella Kelly, violin, for their exquisite performances this evening.  The D99 Orchestra rose to new levels of sonic excellence tonight while accompanying these two stellar senior musicians during their solos.  Congrats to you both Bella and Nicolette!

If you weren't able to join us tonight in the auditorium, you can view the archived concert on the High School Cube or on the DGS Fine Arts YouTube Channel.
