CHS Orchestra Plays Concert before Departing for France

Posted: Updated:

The Charlottesville High School string ensemble held a special concert before a big trip overseas. The 52 students performed the same music they will soon be playing in France.

The group has been fundraising all year for this experience. They will be playing three concerts during their one-week trip.

“We really couldn't have done it on our own. We washed plenty of cars, and we sold plenty of poinsettias, and sold painted violins, and we did all kinds of fundraising projects. But it's not enough when you're talking about a group this size overseas for a week,” said Laura Thomas, CHS orchestra director.

This is will be the Charlottesville orchestra's fourth international trip. The group is set to fly out of Dulles International Airport Friday morning.
