Congrats to our All-Virginia instrumentalists! These students are the best in the entire state – they spent all day Saturday at JMU auditioning against the top high school players from each district and region. We are so proud of them.

  • Orchestra: Aakash Natarajan (bass)
  • Concert Band: Jenna Ainge (horn), Luke Demers (tuba)
  • 1st Alternate: Adam Short (trumpet)

The students will miss two days of school to rehearse and perform at the Richmond Convention Center April 27-29. You can see the world renowned conductors and the musical selections here, the highlight of which will absolutely be Respighi’s Pines of Rome.

Please congratulate our kids when you see them!
