To earn their Silver Award, Cadette Girl Scout Troop 9361 formed a musical performance group called the Concerto Cadettes.
The group will perform at various community centers including children’s hospitals, senior homes, and homeless shelters.
The Silver Award is the highest award that can be earned as a Cadette Girl Scout.
All of the girls play instruments and sing. Their repertoire includes group choral performances, instrumental pieces, solos, and an art exhibition.
“We have been rehearsing for 10 months now, and we’re starting to sound really good!” says Samantha Ozeas, age 13, a Girl Scout troop member.
All of the music is arranged by Steve Morrell, a dad of one of the girls in the troop.
“We are really lucky to have Mr. Morrell, not only compose music specifically for our troop, but come to all our rehearsals and help us practice. Especially because he’s a T.V. and movie composer,” said Sasha Monterroso, age 13, another member of the troop.
The Concerto Cadettes’ first performance will be on Saturday, August 25 at the Mountview Retirement Residence in Montrose.
