Jeffrey Kwong, grade 12, has been accepted to the National High School Honors Orchestra as a cellist. Kwong will be the first Harker student represented in the orchestra, and in late March, will join nearly 100 other musicians from across the United States for a performance at the National Orchestra Festival in Atlanta.
Kwong has been involved in Harker’s music program since grade 6, and is also a Conservatory Certificate candidate. Orchestra director Chris Florio said, “Jeffrey has been a tremendous player in our orchestra program for the last seven years. He placed first last year in a state competition run by ASTA (America String Teachers Association) and is a member of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra along with five other Harker students.”
