String Orchestra/Concert Band

Students interested in string orchestra or concert band as freshmen have the following options:

1. An open invitation to be in either group given interest and some experience in playing their instrument!

2. A fall trimester class – ‘strings lab’ and ‘concert band lab’ – taken during your first trimester at Guerin Catholic. This class gets you officially into the band/orchestra and also gives you the opportunity to get acclimated to the routine of band/orchestra rehearsals. Teachers provide a lot of individualized attention in these ‘labs’ and work on aspects of basic theory while they encourage and nuture musicality.

Look for information on a Fine Arts ice-cream social in August to learn more about Fine Arts opportunities at GC!

    Fun Facts
    This year my husband, Tommy (who also teaches Kinesiology @ GC) and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We have three children, two of whom are students here at Guerin Catholic…Kirsten (Junior), Paige (Freshman), and Tommy 3 (4th grader at St. Maria Goretti). I graduated from Ball State University and was fortunate enough to have a very successful field hockey career for the Cardinals – Chirp Chirp! I recently retired from roller derby where I skated for Circle City Derby for 3 seasons. I love sports, watching my kids play sports, watching movies, and going for walks with my husband. Oh, and I love our fur baby pug, Bugsy 🙂
