Have you ever imagined what it would be like to perform in front of your peers?

Over the week, the Graves County Orchestra, along with the middle school, was given the opportunity to perform all day in the PAC. They played a song called “String Explosion,” while the high school alone performed “Moon Dance.”

Cope Fletcher, junior, informs us about performing “At first, it’s nerve racking being on the stage and everyone watching you, but after the performance is done, the feeling you get like ‘yeah I just did that’ is amazing.”

Even despite all the nerve racking scenarios the orchestra faces, nothing stops the thrill they get when they are up there performing.  Fletcher states that of all the pieces they have learned, “Symphony #6” was one of the favorites, while the hardest piece to learn was “A-Roving,”

“I still have nightmares about that piece,” He jokes.

Cope Fletcher addresses working with the middle school kids for this performance as “Fun! Getting everyone riled up and getting to teach the kids- I love it. It’s a great way to express ourselves.”

This group, together as well as alone, put on a beautiful performance and showed off all their hard work on stage.
