Great Performances

Advanced regional ensembles include eight Titan musicians
Eight Trinity musicians were selected to participate in four prestigious regional musical ensembles this winter. 
Ana Forster ’27 (violin) and Bobby Magnus ’27 (cello) were accepted into Central Regional Orchestra, a string orchestra open to grades 7-9. They performed with other students from the region at Randolph-Macon College on February 9 and 10.Central Regional Orchestra is held each year as a way to challenge and showcase talented and motivated string players in the area. The auditions are open to 7th, 8th and 9th graders in Richmond, Hanover, Henrico and Chesterfield public and private schools, as well as homeschooled students. 
Sylvie Dow ’25 (harp) and Isaac Atkins ’25 (trombone) were accepted into District Band. They gathered, rehearsed and performed with other talented students from the region at Hanover High School February 1-3. “Isaac has been playing for a year and half and earned the top seat in District Band — that's incredible,” says Erin Flynn, strings and chorus teacher. “It is highly unusual for schools to teach new orchestral instruments in high school, but it's something we do routinely here at Trinity.”
Abby Miller ’26, Claire Bowersox ’25 and Carter Erwin ’24 earned acceptance into District Chorus and performed with students from the region February 8-10. They also became eligible to audition for All-State Chorus on February 8.
Elizabeth Ray ’25 (violin), Sylvie Dow ’25 (harp) and Isaac Atkins ’25 (trombone) became eligible because of their acceptance into Senior Regional Orchestra or District Band to audition for All State Orchestra at JMU on February 24. 
“I always say that our ensembles are small but mighty, and our representation at District Band, District Chorus, SRO and CRO are huge indicators of that,” says Flynn, noting that Trinity is “overrepresented” in these prestigious ensembles. “In some ways, our small size helps to get these students prepared for these auditions. I think it speaks to the dedication and work ethic of our students and our unique ability to tailor our instruction to meet their goals.”
Congratulations again to these talented Titans!
