On Sunday, October 29, sixth former Mac Waters will perform in the Carolina Youth Symphony Orchestra. Waters will be playing first chair viola in the concert, which takes place at Furman University at 5 p.m.
Selection for the Carolina Youth Symphony is a prestigious honor for Waters. According to their website, the Symphony Orchestra "brings together the finest young musicians in the area to rehearse and perform under inspiring leadership in a professional environment."
Third former Lia Sprouse and fourth former Grace Vo have both been selected to perform with the Asheville Symphony Youth Orchestra in the Diana Wortham Theatre on Wednesday, November 1, at 7 p.m.
According to their website, the Asheville Symphony Youth Orchestra "serves more than 200 of the very best young musicians in the greater Asheville area," and musicians have the opportunity to participate in masterclasses, retreats and workshops to hone their skill.
Asheville School Music Director John Crawley is proud of these students. "It is great to have young musicians at Asheville School who are able to be a part of off-campus organizations such as these orchestras," he said. "The skills, dedication and teamwork they learn performing in these ensembles are life lessons which they will be able to apply to many facets of their future lives."
