The performance was held in the auditorium of the newly developed high school, South Pointe. The concert was presented by South Pointe’s Strings and Orchestra group which has around fifty students participating, including my younger sister. While the orchestra is smaller than ones I am accustomed to seeing, this group of students was able to fill the auditorium with a complete and centered tone.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
