Orchestras depart for New York April 3


Orchestra students attending the spring break trip to New York will leave tomorrow. Students should meet at the school by 8 p.m. and depart by 9 p.m. on an overnight bus ride.

Orchestra members will then compete in the National Orchestra Cup competition, which is hosted annually at the Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center. At the event, a select group of 15 orchestras will compete. Performances will then be preceded by a clinic with a member of the adjudication panel.

Orchestra members will also have a chance to sightsee and attend a New York Philharmonic performance.

Faye Dipatuan, orchestra member and sophomore, said she is looking forward to visiting New York.

“We’ve been to Chicago before in middle school,” she said, “but never New York. I’m really excited.”
