The upper school orchestra has been named the top scoring orchestra of the Los Angeles Festival of Gold. The orchestra is in southern California today – April 19 — and has the honor of performing in Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in the Orange County Performing Arts Center tonight for the entire group of festival participants and families. The judges and festival director requested the orchestra play the Elgar Cello Concerto, featuring Julia Shim, Gr. 12, for the encore performance. “The kids are thrilled, as this is greatest honor our young orchestra has ever achieved,” said Chris Florio, orchestra director.
