8 FCDS Orchestra Students Earn Chairs in the N.C. American String Teachers Association All-State Orchestra

Freshmen Nathan Faulk and Phoebe Turvaville, sophomores Zach Moore, Duncan Hart, and Nicholas Steward, and juniors Lydia Yu, Harry Zhang, and Kael Zhang auditioned for the program by a video submission process in February. These students were selected from over 200 video submissions of the top string players in North Carolina. 

These students will have the privilege of working with nationally renowned orchestra conductor Dr. Jim Waddelow, who will serve as the clinician for the event. Students will also have masterclasses and sectionals conducted by the UNCSA String Faculty.

The North Carolina American Strings Teachers Association All-State Orchestra Festival will be held on May 12, 2018, here on the campus of FCDS with a concert in our auditorium beginning at 5:00 p.m. 

Congratulations to these students on this wonderful accomplishment!
