By Leslie Capozzoli, Emerson Orchestra Director

Congratulations to Maya Akhoury and Lukas Jonnson on their acceptance into the All-State Orchestra! It is a terrific honor to be chosen from among the 2000+ students who auditioned for the ensembles. Maya and Lukas will be performing with the All-State Orchestra this January in Grand Rapids with other ensemble members from across Michigan. They will be working with guest conductor, Dan Long, who taught at Slauson Middle School for over 30 years and who received many awards, including “Teacher of the Year” by the Band and Orchestra Association. We are so happy for your accomplishments, Maya and Lukas!

Congratulations to all of the students who auditioned for the All-State program. Keep auditioning! You will gain valuable audition skills and hopefully get to exactly where you want to be with your music!
