Orchestra students spent a grueling 48 hours practicing challenging music for the 66th annual Mid-America Union Music Festival, held at Union College. These two days are extremely intense, yet also an exciting opportunity for students to learn from college professors, and be challenged with more difficult music. The trip started out with freezing temperatures of 0° F due to the polar vortex, but that didn't stop the Campion students from playing music! By Friday night, there were many worn-out shoulders and lips from the approximate 15 hours spent practicing. All of our hard work paid off on Saturday night when we performed our pieces at the College View Church. Overall, it was such a fun experience! "I liked getting to meet kids from other schools, and to learn more about percussion," Freshman Ula Matangi commented." If would you like to view our performance, visit www.ucollege.edu/live.
