Two Parkway School District high school students have been selected to play in the prestigious National High School Honors Orchestra.  The students will travel to Santa Clara, California for the concert, which is in association with the American String Teachers Association national convention February 17-20, 2010.

The Parkway students are:

Joy Qiyue He, violin
Senior 
Central High School Orchestra, directed by Winifred Crock

Kathryn Colleen Bradley, double bass
Junior 
South High School Orchestra, directed by Ed Simon and Marilyn Humiston

The mission of the National High School Honors Orchestra is to competitively select the most talented young musicians from school orchestras in each state to assemble biennially and perform in a national showcase, playing music from the professional orchestral literature under the direction of an internationally recognized conductor.  The students working toward excellence in the NHSHO are inspired to carry that excellence back to their own schools and on to a musical future.
