YISS Orchestras presented "A String Thing" on November 20, and it was a huge success. Middle School through high school string players, under the direction of Mrs. Lynelle Harding, demonstrated artistry, skill, and enthusiasm while performing works from classical to heavy metal for a great audience. Featured artists included high school seniors Katherine Y. and Sam C. on cello plus middle school drama students from Ms. Schaefer and Ms. Wenzig's classes.
The program began with the high school orchestras performing Christmas songs plus a piece they had performed at the recent KAIAC Large Group Festival where they won Unanimous Platinum ratings from three judges. The middle school orchestras wowed the audience with their technique and energy, and the evening ended with a rousing version of "Star Wars Heroes" performed by the Chamber Strings Class.
