District 10 Orchestra occurs once a year, usually in January as part of the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA). Each district in the state holds auditions for its orchestra every year, open to grades 7 through 12. Those who win a spot in the orchestra have the possibility of going to audition for Regional and All-State orchestras. The competition is fierce. This year, 95 violinists auditioned for 41 spots. Each had to play the first movement of Mozart’s D major Violin Concerto.
Three students from Moravian Academy earned spots in the orchestra: Ryan Cheng ’24, Elena Capobianco ’23, and Krysta Nichols ’21.
District 10 Orchestra will perform on January 11th at Boyertown Area Senior High School.
