Hello! Today I have another scrap book page that my daughter Ashley did for my son's high school scrapbook. This page shows a major achievement in my son's life: getting into the Wisconsin State Honors Orchestra. In our state, every year auditions are held for exemplary high school musicians to try out to be a part of this orchestra. Over 2,500 students try out for only a hand full of openings. There were only 5 percussionists chosen for the orchestra, and my son was one of the five. Talk about competition! The kids spend about 4 days in Green Bay during the summer practising very difficult music, then in October they meet again in Madison to perform a concert in a majestic auditorium for all the state music teachers and the general public.
Here is the completed page.
