Special Congratulations to Abigail Scavone!
Abigail (8th grade cellist) was selected as one of 12 cellists to perform with the MSBOA All-State Orchestra in Grand Rapids, MI at the Michigan Music Conference. This January, she will take a seat with the finest student musicians from literally every corner of our state. Over 2,600 musicians auditioned for this honor, with around 500 students making it into the 5 different ensembles. Way to go Abigail!
Thank you for your support of our orchestra program!
