East Oregonian
ANAHEIM, Calif. — The
Crimson & Black Choir from
Milton-Freewater’s McLoughlin
High School performed at Disney
California Adventure Park June
15 in Anaheim, California.
Music teacher Melissa Cun-
nington said 25 students and 14
chaperones embarked on the trip
to Southern California June 14-17.
In addition to an enormous amount
of fundraising projects, she said
the group went through a rigorous
selection process and pre-quali-
fying audition in order to be eligi-
ble to perform at the Disney park.
Other area schools, Cunnington
said, have experienced the honor
as well — including Pendleton
High School earlier this spring and
Hermiston High School last year.
Jamie Brown, whose son and
niece performed a duet together,
said it was a memorable trip and
experience for the students.
“We are so proud of these kids
and their talents,” she said.
In addition to their performance,
the entourage from Milton-Freewa-
ter participated in a recording ses-
sion at Disneyland. Cunnington
said it was a great opportunity for
the students.
“They learned about the record-
ing process and profession while
recording their voices to a Disney-
land movie scene,” she said. “It was

Symphony receives boost from Miller Foundation
East Oregonian
PENDLETON — A three-
year grant from the James F.
and Marion L. Miller Foun-
dation will support strings
education in Pendleton.
The Oregon East Sym-
phony received the $30,000
grant, which supports the
foundation’s mission of
enhancing the quality of life
of Oregonians by promoting
classroom education and the
performing, visual and liter-
ary arts. Based in Portland,
the foundation envisions Ore-
gon as a place where the arts
thrive in supportive commu-
nities, and educational sys-
tems support the effectiveness
of teaching and learning in
every classroom.
Playing for Keeps, the
Oregon East Symphony’s
youth music education proj-
ect, serves hundreds of young
people in the area and encom-
passes several unique pro-
grams, Janet Miller, the Ore-
gon East Symphony grant
coordinator, said in a press
release. Along with two pre-
paratory orchestras, Sym-
phony Strings is an after-
school beginning strings
program for fourth and fifth
grade students. It’s a collab-
orative effort between the
symphony and the Pendleton
School District.
In November, a Young
grammed by OES artis-
tic director Beau Benson,
is planned. It is designed to
introduce students to the fun-
damentals of music, instru-
ments within a symphony
orchestra and proper concert
etiquette, Miller said.
Also, the symphony’s
Summer Strings Music
Camp, scheduled for July
22-26, will focus on building
individual playing technique
and ensemble performance.
Applications are still available
through the symphony office
or during the opening day of
the camp at Peace Lutheran
Church, 210 N.W. Ninth St.,
