Spring Orchestra Concert

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

The Mt. Loafer/Salem sixth grade orchestra performed their spring concert last week! The students have done a fantastic job this year learning the violin, viola, and cello. It was so fun to perform for their families and friends, and to celebrate how far they’ve come over the past eight months of playing their instruments!
