All-West Orchestra Honors
Congratulations to all Owl musicians who auditioned for the All-West Tennessee Orchestras. They performed difficult musical excerpts and scales, and were required to sightread in front of a judge who is a professional musician and/or teacher.
The following Owls earned All-West honors:
11-12 Symphony Orchestra
Senior Frederick Huang, 6th Chair, Violin
Senior Jeffrey Liu, Alternate Clarinet
Junior Gabe Chen, 4th Chair, Violin
Junior Danny Dong, 1st Chair, Percussion
Junior Joel Lim, 1st Chair, Oboe
Junior Henry Lindeman, 2nd Chair, Trombone
Junior Evan Wu, 6th Chair, Viola
9-10 String Orchestra
Sophomore Michael Liu, 2nd Chair, Violin
Freshman Bill Chiang, 4th Chair, Violin
Freshman Henry Phan, 36th Chair, Violin
Freshman Liam McCarver, Alternate Cello
Middle School String Orchestra
Eighth grader Will Brezina, Violin
Eighth grader Soren Johnson, Cello
All of the above Upper School orchestra students may qualify for the Tennessee All-State Orchestras, but Chen, Chiang, Dong, Huang, Lim and Liu have secured All-State placement already.
Earning All-West and All-State recognition is a great honor and valuable for seeking college scholarships!
