Chaparral’s Greg Rochford Selected to Conduct Honor Orchestra
DIAMOND BAR, CA--Chaparral Middle School Orchestra Director Greg Rochford recently had the opportunity to conduct the San Bernardino County Middle School Honor Orchestra.
“The 60-member group is comprised of the best 7th and 8th grade string players from throughout all of San Bernardino County,” Rochford said.
Rehearsals were held on two Saturdays in February and the concert was held on Saturday, March 1 at the University of Redlands.
The Honor Orchestra performed Sinfonia in D by Johann Christian Bach, Blue Rhythmico by Kirt Mosier, Over the Sea to Skye by Carrie Lane Gruselle, and the 1812 Overture arranged by Sandra Dackow.
The San Bernardino County Music Educators Association (SBCMEA) sponsors three honor orchestras - elementary, middle and high school.
This was the second time Rochford has been selected to conduct an honor group for the SBCMEA. He has previously conducted the Elementary Honor Band.
