Our High School String Orchestra, under the direction of Mrs. Beth Priore performed with world renowned cellist, Yo-Yo Ma on Friday at the Greater Valley Community Resource Center on Holland Avenue in Braddock. His visit was orchestrated by the Kennedy Center as part of their new Arts Across America program. Mr. Ma also participated in a panel discussion with members of our Students Against Gun Violence group, including Ciara Turner, and alumna Jarah Doosé. While on stage, Mr. Ma took the time to speak to each of our students and music teachers individually, signed their music and instruments, and made everyone feel important and appreciated. It was an incredible experience for everyone involved.
