Youth Orchestra Completes Second Successful Year




Approximately 60 students from our 10 elementary schools completed their participation for the 2018-2019 school year in the Vance County Schools Youth Orchestra with a community concert on April 11. The concert was held in the auditorium at E.M. Rollins Elementary School.


The students played their violins and violas for an audience of approximately 400 parents, other family members, local educators and school system officials.


This school year was the second year for the VCS Youth Orchestra, which is led by representatives from the Wake Forest Youth Orchestra and music teachers in our elementary schools.


The students displayed their talents for the audience during several musical selections. The smiles on the students' faces demonstrated that the orchestra experience has been a very positive one and one that hopefully will lead to them continuing their studies in instrumental music for many years to come.
