Selected students will be rehearsing a challenging repertoire in preparation for a performance under the baton of Dr. Jean Montès. The Symphony Orchestra Concert begins at 10:00 a.m., November 28, in the ballroom at Disney Coronado Springs Resort. Cellist Loa Cho ’19, Bowling Green, advanced to the finals of the 2018 OMTA State Buckeye Music Competition.

The MVCDS junior was last year’s principal cello in the Ohio All-State Orchestra and is currently principal cello of the TSYO Philharmonic Orchestra. Last but not least, MVCDS is very proud of the following regional orchestra members.
