FMS Coffeehouse Concert

Concert 2

On Tuesday, Feb. 25, the orchestra students from Farnsworth, Wilson, and Jackson, as well as the Chamber Orchestra students from South High School performed in Farnsworth's Coffeehouse Concert. Intended to be a concert in a more casual style, the performance included large group performances from all four schools, a combined Farnsworth/South High piece, as well some solos and small ensemble pieces featuring several Farnsworth students. The Farnsworth Orchestras also offered baked goods and coffee, tea, cappuccino, and hot chocolate drinks for sale during the event as a fundraiser toward additional supplies for the orchestra program. Rounding out the 'casual' audience experience, cafeteria tables were set out as seating options for the crowd, in an effort for the event to mimic an 'open mic night' at a coffeehouse.

Teachers involved were Sarah Oftedahl from Farnsworth, Patty Misted from Wilson and Jackson, and Ann Muellenbach from South High School.

My favorite aspects of this event are future Farnsworth students having an opportunity to actively participate in a Farnsworth event prior to their arrival in 6th grade, helping to ease their transition into middle school, and also to see so many former Farnsworth students return from South High and make music in the FMS cafeteria once again. It is a joy to see and experience so many students who have chosen to make music, perform together!

Featured in the picture are the Farnsworth 6th/7th/8th grade orchestras (seated) and the SHS Chamber orchestra students (standing), with Mrs. Sarah Oftedahl conducting the final piece of the concert.
