After months of preparation and practice, students, teachers and families gathered at Mesquite High School for the 2022 Cavalcade of Rhythm Duet Ensemble. The 2021 performance was done virtually on YouTube, and we were so thrilled to be together on stage this year to share this unique musical experience with our friends and family. With the exciting "Music at the Movies" theme, students performed movie music favorites during two evening performances. The smiles said it all, and we are so grateful for all those who worked so hard to make this evening happen. Special thanks especially to our Cavalcade Chairperson, Sara Pratt, and her committee, Carolyn Eldredge and Yuerong Gong. They have been so innovative in making all the necessary adjustments to go forward with this event to provide the opportunities for these students to have this amazing experience.

The Dress Rehearsal for Cavalcade of Rhythm was a huge success. Students arrived at Mesquite High School and were directed where to sit during the performance, where to go to get onstage, and how to get back to their seats. Most importantly, they had time on the stage to run through their amazing pieces to get ready to perform their Music at the Movies!
Cavalcade Rehearsals February 2022
February is always a busy month with Cavalcade of Rhythm group rehearsals, and we were thrilled to be able to gather together this year to practice our fabulous duets. Students attended three rehearsals over the period of three weeks before the performance to learn how to follow the conductor and work together. Amazing progress was made by these committed students. Many thanks to all the teachers and volunteers who helped run and direct the rehearsals, to the parents for getting their children there, and to The Music Store for hosting us. We can't wait for performance day!
