Robinwood Elementary students in grades kindergarten through second attended a seventh- and eighth-grade orchestra concert on May 17 at the Boardman Performing Arts Center. Songs played by the orchestra included “Selections from Grease,” “Bacchanale,” Bluegrass Country” and “Hawaii 5-0.”

Bill Amendol, orchestra director, said that the concert is a way to expose the younger children to playing music and the arts.

“Our system is very lucky to be the only school in Mahoning and many surrounding counties to have an orchestra program. Our young children need exposure to the arts. Most of them will never go to the symphony so we like to bring them in to give them that experience,” said Amendol. “We hope the kids gain an appreciation for orchestral music. We also hope it furthers their interest in live performances and that they help to educate their parents. Maybe even convince their parents to being them to another performance,” said Amendol.

Amendol said the performance benefits the seventh- and eighth-grade students as well.

“Performing for a younger audience is always fun for our students. The little ones have a great energy to feed off of that our performers love,” said Amendol.
