Interlake High Chamber Orchestra places third in national competition
The Interlake High School Chamber Orchestra recently earned third place in the school orchestra division of The American Prize competition. Interlake was selected from applications reviewed this summer from all across the country.
The competition recognizes and rewards the best performing artists, ensembles and composers in the United States, based on submitted recordings. Judges commented that Interlake’s orchestra had a “generous depth of tone, good intonation… performances with a sense of direction and considerable expression.”
The orchestra is conducted by Dr. Shira Katsman.
Also, two Interlake students, Darren Leung (violin) and Emily Sun (violin) were selected to perform in the 2013 NAfME All-National Honor Symphony Orchestra in Nashville, Tenn.
The annual fundraiser for the school's orchestrates will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2 in the Interlake Commons and will include Starbucks coffee, desserts, silent auction, and live music from the school's orchestras.
