“When I first joined this orchestra, it was held at someone's house! I have seen it grow into 6 different ensembles! It was here that I learned you don't tap your feet in a string orchestra, that's for band players. Joining this orchestra has vastly expanded my musical knowledge. I am so glad this HOME SCHOOL orchestra exists! If this orchestra wasn't for home-schoolers, I wouldn't get to do it at 1 in the afternoon! And everyone is so nice. Sure it's small, but we all feel like family. Thank you THSO!”
"I started playing when I was just 2 years old on a piece of scrap wood my dad and mom made for me. I saw my older sister playing violin and I couldn't help but want my own violin, too! I have a real violin now and have been playing it for 3 years."
