Violinist Rebecca Slater ’18 won an audition to Concertmaster in the All Eastern Orchestra. With the highest score among musicians from 11 states, she was First Chair when performing with this elite Orchestra in April in Atlantic City. Previously she was accepted into the 2017 New Jersey All State High School Orchestra and served as Concertmaster. Rebecca was also one of three Upper School violinists accepted into the New Jersey Music Educators Association All-State Orchestra. To qualify for the All-State audition, she had to audition for, be accepted into, and perform with the North Jersey Regional Orchestra.
This month Rebecca, along with Sophia Chen ’20, performed at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City during the NJEA Convention as well as at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. This prestigious ensemble was comprised of New Jersey’s top high school musicians.
