Because of the grant, VCS has garnered a mixture of string/bow instruments to include violins, violas, cellos, and more. Paired with equipment, VCS has also attained trained personnel eager to expose the arts to VCS middle/high school students.
The Strings/Orchestra program will follow a regimen aligned with the Georgia Standards of Excellence in music for sixth through twelfth grade students by highly skilled teachers within Valdosta City Schools and community to include Ms. Keisha Thomas of the Art Inc. organization. The program will utilize Essential Elements of Strings text, along with accompanying equipment provided.
All interested students must submit a VCS Strings/Orchestra interest form to Mrs. Tangela Kimber, Director of Fine Arts and World Languages by November 14, 2019. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
