IRMO, SC- Lexington-Richland School District Five had an incredible showing at the 2016 Region Orchestra auditions held on October 1 and will send 68 students to participate in the 2016 Region 3 Orchestra event. District Five had more students than any other district represented at the auditions. The 2016 Region 3 Orchestra event will take place on November 18-19 at Irmo High School.
“As you can see, our school district has much to be proud of in the orchestra world,” said Carol Murray, Orchestra instructor at CrossRoads Intermediate School. “Our students worked tremendously hard preparing for these auditions and represented our schools and our school district extremely well.”
Almost half of the sixth through eighth grade Region orchestra will be represented by District Five students. Those students also placed on the first stand in every section at auditions. District Five orchestra students placed on the first stand in four out of five sections in the 11-12 grade Region 3 orchestra. 7 out of 12 cello players from the sixth through eighth grade Region 3 orchestra will be represented by District Five students. Vihar Dalal, a senior at Irmo High School, had the highest score of anyone in Region 3.
