Congratulations to Emma Stewart, Ally Novogradac, and Jake Manglicmot for an outstanding performance with the Senior Regional Orchestra at E. C. Glass High School in Lynchburg this past weekend. The South Central SRO is one of four regional orchestras held in Virginia each November, and is sponsored by the Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association and the Virginia Music Educators Association. Back in September, OCHS band students auditioned for the SC SRO along with high schools from VMEA Districts 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 13. Emma earned the principal chair for percussion, Ally earned 3rd chair French horn, and Jake earned 2nd chair percussion. All three musicians are eligible to take the All-Virginia Band and Orchestra audition in February. Great job!
