Congratulations All-State Musicians!

Leave a comment

The Columbus Suzuki Strings Program is incredibly proud of our students who auditioned for All-State Symphony. Not only did everyone who auditioned get selected this year, but we virtually swept the table!

Charity James — 1st cello
Abby Swartzendruber — 2nd violin
Hope Bassett — 4th violin
Gracie Swartzendruber — 5th violin
Aidan Dunkelberg — 6th violin

And when you consider that Daniel Jones, who started in our program and played with us for many years until moving to Starkville, is 1st violin, we can say the Columbus program is very well represented with 5 of the top 6 violins and the top cello.

Congratulations on all of your hard work on your audition tapes! And good luck learning this year’s pieces and performing April 16 at Belhaven!
