Kennedy Center (2017)
Please enjoy these photos of our Mira Mesa High School Orchestra from the 2017 Washington D.C. International Music Festival, which was held at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on April 16, 2017. The photos were taken at the dress rehearsal and have been provided courtesy of World Projects. These photos are also available in a Facebook album.
By request, here is an order form for Mira Mesa Orchestra sweatshirts. Requests are due on or before Friday, May 19th.
*** NEW *** Orchestra Course Code
With grades closing this week a significant number of students will soon see a new orchestra course on their transcripts. Our third year orchestra juniors will now see 'Orchestra 5,6' appear on their report cards and school transcripts.
Our Mira Mesa musicians are the first students in the district to receive this designation and they are more than deserving of this new classification. This new course code will better serve our musicians and families, as it will enable our students to show (on their transcripts) a continued commitment to their craft. Given that we were successful in implementing this course, one should expect that we will be tasked with piloting Orchestra 7,8 for our fourth year senior musicians during the 2017-18 school year.
Many thanks are due to our Visual and Performing Arts Department, and Ms. Laura Williams in particular, for helping facilitate this positive change for our students and community. Thank you!
The New York based NOW Ensemble will be visiting San Diego as part of their spring tour.

Members of our Mira Mesa Orchestras have been invited to perform in advance of this event. While admission to the event is free, interested individuals must secure an e-ticket.
