Each week, TakeLessons students and teachers send us their shout outs. We’re thankful to be a part of this positive and thriving community, so we’d like to share these messages with you. Here are all of this week’s shout outs!
Adam C. in Lilburn, GA wrote, “One of my star students, Angia C. just won the Concerto Competition to perform Hadyn Violin Concerto in G Major, with the Gwinnett County Youth Orchestra. Two of my professionally bound students, Kynan C. and Kathryn C., both passed their UGA college auditions with flying colors and received scholarships too! 14 of my violin and viola students won their All-State Orchestra Auditions.” Way to go!
Angel M. in San Diego, CA wrote, “Hi guys! I, along with fellow TakeLessons teacher Kayla G. have started a new choral ensemble called Folklore! It pairs professional singers with standout high school/ junior college vocalists to prepare and encourage them to pursue a career in the arts after they graduate. We perform music from the high renaissance, negro-spirituals, folksongs, arrangements of songs by indie bands, and music from video games. We even wear monk robes! We’ll premier this summer at the San Diego Choral Festival at St. Paul’s cathedral. Should be a great time! If any local San Diego teachers have some recommended students to audition at the end of May, we encourage them to check out our website for more information. www.folkloreguild.org” Sounds like an awesome project. We can’t wait to see the debut!
