| June 14, 2017

Last week, students in the Pinewood Orchestra had the opportunity to meet and have a question-and-answer session with Lorie Gruneisen, the composer of their original song, “Accents on the Classics.” She fielded insightful questions from students about where she gets her inspiration for songs,¬†what her favorite instrument is to play and more — and also shared some tips with the students about overcoming nerves and taking advantage of their creativity.

Following months of diligent preparation, the students debuted the original piece last Thursday, June 8, at the Pinewood Spring Concert.
