    Crookston High School Orchestra instructor Haley Ellis is hoping to launch a new, annual musical tradition in Crookston this summer by organizing an inaugural “Orchestra Summer Pops Concert” for both current high school orchestra members and orchestra alumni.

    • Do you or a family member play a string instrument?

    • Do you miss playing in an ensemble?

    • Do you want to play some fun pieces in a low-key setting?

    If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, Ellis is hoping you’ll play in the summer concert, which will be held in June at a specific date yet to be determined.

    If you’re interested or would like more information, contact Ellis at Or, you can complete the form at by May 7.
