SHHS Symphony Orchestra
The SHHS Symphony Orchestra performed their annual preview concert on the evening of Tuesday, October 18th , in the auditorium. We hosted the 8th grade orchestras from Horizon and Laredo Middle School, who played a few pieces as a large group. The 8th graders finished the concert in a side-by-side performance with the symphony orchestra, where they will had the opportunity to sit next to our top string players at Smoky Hill. The concert also featured percussionists from the SHHS wind symphony.
We would like to congratulate violinist, Melody Su (Class of 2013), on her acceptance to the 28th Annual Western States Honor Orchestra! This festival is held from Nov. 4th-6th on UNC’s campus, where students will have the chance to perform with guest artist, Jeffrey Turner (double-bass), and under the baton of Maestro Johan Jonsson. Jeffrey Turner performs internationally, and currently serves as the principal bassist of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Director of Orchestral Studies at Duquesne University. Maestro Jonsson, Professor of Violin and Viola at Montana State University, was born in Sweden and received his formal training at the Conservatoire Darius Milhaud and the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, Sweden. The Western States Honor Orchestra Festival receives auditions from several hundred high school string players in Colorado and Wyoming, and only accepts around 100 students. We are extremely proud that Melody was one of the lucky students who will be able to attend this amazing weekend.
