Seven Honors Orchestra students recently participated in two days of rehearsals and a final performance on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University as part of MTSU’s Honor Orchestra.
Chenyou Fan, Maggie Williams, London Sullens, Hannah Joslin, Nick Allison, Amorri Wilkins and Alora Pearce were nominated by Susan Mullen, Webb’s orchestra director, to participate with other dedicated high school music students from the middle Tennessee region.
“The MTSU High School Honors Orchestra is an experience I look forward to every year. Getting to play with such young, talented individuals makes me eager to continue my skills in music throughout my college experience,” said Sullens. “The musicians are friendly, provide excellent feedback, and make every student feel welcomed and prepared to play the rigorous music!”
MTSU’s Honor Orchestra performed an ambitious program which included the music from The Lion King, Schindler’s List, and several other popular movies. This concert was held in Hinton Hall in the Wright Music Building on the MTSU campus on Nov. 4.
“I had a great time at MTSU. I learned new techniques and made lots of new talented friends,” Amorri Wilkins said about her participation. Maggie Williams added, “The concert was super fun. The music was difficult, the people were nice, and everything was really exciting.”
