By Michelle Borton, Lower School Music Teacher and Band Director

Congratulations to John Byers, Lily Gillman, Michael Pelosi and Ben Whiting for being accepted to participate in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Honor Band.

These students were selected based on their musicianship, participation in summer camps or community ensembles, willingness to challenge themselves with optional performance opportunities: All State Audition and Solo and Ensemble Festival, and their attitude/leadership ability in the Emerson Band program.

On March 16th, 2015, these students will have the chance to rehearse with renowned faculty, learn exciting and diverse repertoire, play alongside Detroit Symphony Orchestra musicians and perform in Detroit’s historic Orchestra Hall.
