Orchestra will be presenting its annual spring show on May 24 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. Admission is free and there will be refreshments afterward.

The concert, “Rawk the Hawk,” will feature covers of popular songs from artists and groups like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, One Direction and more.

“[The] concert is going to be rock concert themed, so we are all going to be dressed up accordingly which is something we haven’t done in a while,” junior and concertmaster Elizabeth Wei said. “We are also going to be using electric instruments along with pick-ups attached to every instrument which will make us sound even more rock-like. A lot of the music that we are going to be playing is popular and mainstream, so it will be fun watching the audience recognize them.”
