2 Emerson Musicians in All-State Band & Orchestra, 2 Honorable Mentions

Congratulations to Emerson trombonist, Jonathan Roberts, and violinist, Hannah Park, who were invited to perform with the Michigan All-State Band and Orchestra!  Jonathan and Hannah auditioned for this opportunity along with over 2,500 students from around the state.  The competition for each spot in the band and orchestra was extremely tough, but these dedicated musicians had stellar auditions and they made it!  They will perform in January at the Music Educators Conference in Grand Rapids.

Tejal Patel and Lukas Jonsson were among eighteen students who received an Honorable Mention.  Several Emerson students challenged themselves to learn the material and take the audition.  Auditions are rare opportunities to practice performing under a particular kind of pressure.  Mrs. Borton and Ms. Capozzoli congratulate each of the students who took the audition and bettered themselves as performers!  We are all very proud of you!
