JSD Middle School Orchestras Selected to Perform in Elite Festival

Oquirrh Hills Middle School orchestra on stage at UMEA State Orchestra FestivalSome middle school musicians are being recognized by music educators from across the state of Utah. Oquirrh Hills Middle School’s top orchestra directed by Eric Perkins, and Fort Herriman’s top orchestra directed by Amy Stutznegger, both earned a spot in the highly competitive Utah Music Educators Association State Orchestra Festival. After a blind audition, just 18 schools from across the state were selected to participate in the festival held at Libby Gardner Hall on the University of Utah campus. We are very proud of these dedicated young students and the music educators who help them turn music into something magical.
