Twelve Cleveland Heights High School students were inducted into the Heights chapter of Tri-M Music Honor Society on Oct. 10.
Those inducted include Gretchen Drushel, Ilona Eke, Kyle Finnegan, Rebecca Friedberg, Sara Friedberg, Gordon Gustafson, Lillian Hall, Joseph Nicoletti, Abigail Osgood, Benjamin Sperl, Janine Walker and Taylor Young.
Daniel Heim, the director of orchestras at the high school, is quite proud of his students being selected for the honor.
“It’s really a great program to give special recognition to our leaders in the music department and we have a strong music department at the high school. These are people who are involved in music both in the school and outside in the community which is really exemplary and tremendous,” Heim said.
Watch out for the high school’s orchestra program in the upcoming months at children’s and VA hospitals. Although the group hasn’t settled on its groupings or repertoire yet, expect to see them playing classical chamber and holiday music in December.
Those students selected will also help produce the Ohio Music Education Association’s Solo and Ensemble contest which will happen at Cleveland Heights High School on Feb. 16, 2013.
