CONGRATULATIONS ABOUND FOR OUR STUDENTS' FANTASTIC PERFORMANCES AT ASSESSMENT AND BEYOND!

CONGRATS TO CHAMBER STUDENTS! For their "'SUPERIOR" rating at Assessment.  They received straight "1s" from all three judges, plus a "1" on sight reading. You are simply amazing!

CONGRATS TO SYMPHONIC STUDENTS! For their "EXCELLENT" rating at Assessment.  They received the highest "2" possible from some very finicky judges, plus a "1" in sight reading, a category where most groups usually fall short.  Mr. O is very proud of what you achieved, especially with some very challenging repertoire and a ridiculous number of intervening snow days.

CONGRATS TO CONCERT STUDENTS!  For all of their hard work and accomplishment in preparing for Assessment, although they didn't get a chance to WOW the judges last weekend.  From your pre-Assessment concert, we already know how awesome you are!  Stay tuned for a possible plan for an "alternate Assessment" experience in the coming weeks so that Mr. O can show you off properly.

CONGRATS TO THE FOLLOWING SIX STUDENTS FOR SUCCESSFULLY GARNERING A SEAT AT THE ALL VIRGINIA (ALL-STATE) ORCHESTRA EVENT!  

Violins:  Hannah Chung, Tiffany Cai, Stephen Yi and Angel He

Cello: Maggie Chen

Bass:  Conor Moran   

This is an HISTORIC number of OHS students participating in the most competitive honors orchestra event in the Commonwealth - Oakton has never had more than 5 students participating.  We are SO PROUD of your accomplishment, and also SO PROUD of all the other students who auditioned.  Go Cougars!

THANK YOU!  To all of our most extraordinary parents and students for your generous volunteer time in supporting the District 12 Assessment event.  Notwithstanding Friday's cancellation, the event went off without a hitch thanks to your support.  We truly could not have accomplished such a herculean task without all of you!

FINALLY, THANK YOU!  To Mr. Oppenheimer for all of his hard work, talent and dedication to our students and their musical development.  You make all of us proud to be a part of the OHS Orchestra program!
