orchestral (part 2)

Hello again! I've been meaning to make this post for a week now but I've been swamped with AP tests and prom. So here is what happened at my last orchestra banquet: the officers decided on a birthday theme, because who doesn't love birthday parties.


Our decorations consisted of balloons, party hats, signs, and a pinata (that we unfortunately didn't have anywhere to hang, so we are saving it.)


We had to improvise a little with the placement of the balloons, but Fafa had a genius idea of tying them to her ukulele case. It worked brilliantly. 


I might have have gone a little overboard with photographing the decorations...

Most Likely To Survive Fear Factor awards.
David presenting the orchestra court.
The members of the orchestra present, or as I like to call: Issac and His Ladies.
The officers unfortunately had to count 120-something ballots for superlatives (I got out of that because I had to do a ton of work on the slideshow...) But the awards were so much fun and entertaining. My favorite award was "Most Likely to Survive Fear Factor," the unlucky winners award were to eat all of the gummy worms out of pie tins filled with pudding without their hands. Unfortunately, our director wouldn't allow that because apparently it's too messy. 


There was also karaoke and dancing. It's always fun to watch a bunch of musicians try and dance and sing. 

Overall the banquet was a blast and I'm truly going to miss orchestra next year.

orchestral (part one)

Last Friday I had my last orchestra banquet and there were tears. I'm an officer this year and we've been prepping for this event for a while now. The past few weeks have consisted of editing pictures and yelling at my fellow seniors to send me their baby photos. My main job for this years banquet was to compile a slideshow that reflected our school year, and if I do say so myself, the slideshow was one of the best parts. Here are some of my favorite shots that ended up in the slideshow:









And to avoid this post being a little two picture heavy, I'm going to post my pictures from the banquet in a separate post within the next few days .
