Chamber Orchestra UIL

The Langham Creek Chamber Orchestra had their UIL performance on the 27th of April. After practicing their program for months after school and in class rehearsals, they earned a sweepstakes rating, meaning they got the best rating in every category including keeping tempo and being in tone on their pieces of music. Another part of the competition, sight reading, is a competition in which they are given a new piece of music and have to learn in a limited amount of time and perform it.

“It went really well, we got all ones. We’re getting better as a group as we gain more experience,” junior cello player Camden Ferrel said.

Their arrangement of music which was picked back at the beginning of the year consisted of Saint Paul’s Suite, Heart of Fire, and Spring Breezes.

“Heart of Fire is about famous figures in history like Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela, so it’s called Heart of Fire because the Heart of Fire which represents the spirit and devotion to their causes,” sophomore violin player Ayse Erdemir said.

The UIL competition was their last competition of the year.”Its been fun, its been a lot fun, I think we finished strong,” sophomore bass player Blake Sitterly said.

They will be performing these pieces along with a piece from a video game at their spring concert on the 16th, along with three other orchestras. This will be orchestra’s last event of the year.
