A month has flown by since our junior YONA students attended their instrument graduation ceremony. While general focus levels have increased to an all time high recently, our classes retain its high tension atmosphere of excitement as students finally get to begin learning and caring for their real instruments.
As these students now work towards their first ever Winter Concert on December 19th, 2018. Let us take a peek back and relive some more memories of the graduation ceremony that took place on October 30th, 2018.
Below you will find pictures of activities throughout that day. While junior students prepped themselves for the performance, the senior students contributed by ensuring things ran smoothly. This involved all sorts of tasks from tuning instruments to setting up the gym. As a result to this hard work, the event ended up being a resounding success as the entire YONA family gathered in support of our new budding musicians!
