The performances on Dec. 12-13 marked the ﬁrst time the entire orchestra and band have played together, according to MHS teacher Maia Zander.
“This is the ﬁrst year our string players are at a high enough level to combine with the band program and do full orchestra pieces. I love seeing them rise above the standard and level of what should be possible and do professional level, unbelievable performances," Zander said.
