Ephrata student named to All-Eastern Honors Orchestra
Grace Chon, an Ephrata High School junior who plays cello, has been selected to participate in the National Association for Music Education’s 2013 All Eastern Honors Orchestra. She is one of only 33 Pennsylvania students, including five cellists, selected to participate.
The orchestra members will attend and perform at the National Association of Music Education’s Eastern Division conference held April 4 through 7 in Hartford, Conn. The conference is held every two years. The nearly 150-member orchestra is comprised of students from Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Europe. Membership is based on a student’s audition, his or her director’s recommendation, and his or her performance in state ensembles.
"An opportunity like this is one that does not present itself very often. I am proud of Grace and achieving this accomplishment. She is a true testament that hard work pays off," said Richard Ney, Ephrata High School’s orchestra director.
Previously, Grace has performed with the county, district, regional, and state orchestras. She has been playing cello for eight years and also plays piano. She participates in the Ephrata High School orchestra, Reading Symphony Youth Orchestra, and Allegretto Youth Chamber Orchestra. She was also a member of the pit orchestra for the 2012 Ephrata High School musical "Little Women."
