CHAPIN, SC - Chapin High School’s Masterclass Orchestra has been invited to play at the South Carolina Music Educators Association Annual State Professional Conference held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center on February 2, 2017.
“I am very honored that through a blind audition process our program has been chosen among many other orchestra programs from around the state,” Chapin High School Orchestra Director Andrew Lynn said. “The Masterclass students and I from Chapin High work very hard and are excited to show all the music educators and attendees at the conference the high level of musicianship and technique we bring to each and every one of our performances.”
Chapin High School’s Orchestra is made up of 18 members including 8 violins, 5 cellos and 5 violas. “It is exciting for our program to be selected to perform at such an event,” Chapin High student Kiersten McCoy said. “We all work hard to improve each and every day and it is reassuring to see that our music is enjoyed not just by us, but by those that hear our performance.”
“I am constantly amazed at the talent and dedication of our students,” said Chapin High School Principal Dr. Akil Ross. “Mr. Lynn and the Masterclass Orchestra have worked very hard for this honor. I know that they will shine at the Music Educators Conference. Go Eagles!”
