Emerson’s All-State Band & Orchestra, Honors Composition Stars

The All-State Band and Orchestra Concert was Jan. 19 at DeVos Hall in Grand Rapids, and Emerson is so proud that Tejal Patel, Hojin Han, Ian Yi, and Jon-Michael Taylor were playing there. More than 2,200 students throughout Michigan auditioned, rehearsing and performing challenging music with guest conductors, and Emerson’s young musicians shined.

Two more Emerson Students performed in the Honors Composition Concert that same afternoon. Anvit Rao performed his piano composition, Through the Ebony Woods, and Cari Bohm performed her piano composition, Busy as a Bee. Anvit and Cari were two of only 20 middle school and high school students selected to play their compositions.

We are so proud to see the hard work of our students pay off. Congratulations talented young Emerson stars!
