Four GCPS students play Carnegie Hall

Four GCPS students played at Carnegie Hall Sunday. Brookwood High School Students Evan Butterworth, Eunice Choi, and Ruby Lee, as well as Zander Sugarman, a student at Mountain View High School, took part in the 2016 High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall. The performance series challenges elite students to perform at their very best. Students rehearsed and performed under master conductors and had the opportunity to perform before invited representatives from collegiate and professional music programs. Though much of the student’s time was focused on performance preparation, they also experienced the best of the sights and performance arts in New York City. Only 750 high school students, from a pool of 18,000 worldwide, were selected to perform in one of three instrumental or two vocal groups. This year’s participants represented 49 states, four Canadian provinces, Guam, Armenia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Oman, the Philippines, Qatar, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates
