Congratulations to Sydney Brown, Emily Gregg, Caitlin O’Barr,  Zachary Alston, and Sara Randall!
To audition for the regional orchestra, string students had to prepare three pre- selected  etudes from original major non abridged classical compositions.   Then prepare 10 different scales – Followed by an extremely difficult segment of sight-reading.
Competition is steep – especially for violinists as there were nearly 300 violinists auditioning this year!
Every high school member of our Chamber orchestra prepared for this audition and participated in auditions last Saturday!  Bravo Chamber!!!!
We had five students make it into regional orchestra this year!
For the first time EVER, 22 Heritage scholars have been accepted into the regional honor choir, nearly a quarter of the Choir will be our very own Heroes! Considering that there are hundreds of students auditioning every year from public school, this is a big deal. Additionally, Brigham Olsen was chosen as the first chair for the bass section, meaning he received the highest score during his audition. Please help me congratulate all these accomplished singers!
