NEISD presents An Evening with Strings

North East ISD is hosting four nights of beautiful music at the District’s annual “An Evening with Strings” event. Students from fifth-grade strings, middle school orchestras and combined NEISD senior orchestras are performing for audiences over four nights, April 18-21.

The first night features students from NESA, and Lee and Reagan cluster schools; the second night features students from Johnson and Roosevelt cluster schools; the third night features students from the Churchill cluster; and the fourth night features students from MacArthur and Madison cluster schools.

“This year’s program theme is ‘Let’s Go To The Movies’,” said Jody Noblett, NEISD Fine Arts Director. “The idea behind the theme is to celebrate the cinema and bring back memories of some of our favorite films throughout the years.”

With approximately 3,000 students performing together, it is a huge undertaking to coordinate and put on, but each year the performances just keep getting better.

“I would like to personally recognize the NEISD orchestra directors for continuing to provide our students with a top-notch music education,” added Noblett.

“Evening with Strings is a unique event celebrating instrumental music and instruction in NEISD,” said Julie Shore, Executive Director of Fine Arts. “We have novice players just starting their music careers with fifth-grade strings to master musicians in our high school students. This is a can't miss event every year.”

This is the 39th year for “An Evening with Strings,” and it has gone from taking place in one night to four nights, as more students get involved in the orchestra program. All performances begin at 7 p.m. in the Littleton Gym at Blossom Athletic Center. This event is free and open to the public.
