Hightower Trail Middle School 8th Grade Orchestra performs at GMEA In service Conference

The Hightower Trail Middle School 8thGrade Orchestra, under the direction of Michael Tompkins and Paul O’Keefe, performed as a featured performance ensemble at the Georgia Music Educators Association In service Conference in Athens, Georgia on Thursday, January 24, 2019.

As one of only two school orchestras selected, the Hightower Trail MS Orchestra performed a demanding program from a variety of time periods including selections that challenged the students both technically and musically. The students performed well beyond their years during the entire program.

The students and conductors performed with grace, musicality, and skill and truly represented the CCSD music programs in excellent fashion.
