As we prepare to announce the 2022 HIMC Competition, our Co-Marketing Manager, Andrew Yang, shares his Solo & Ensemble experience in preparation for UIL.
The work that they put into music can be applied anywhere in life.
A Solo and Ensemble Competition was recently held for middle/high schoolers across Spring Branch ISD. To be honest, it was amazing to watch some of the performers perform pieces such as Bruch’s Concerto Number 1 in G Minor 3rd Movement and Vitali’s Chaconne. Even the judges seemed to be very impressed with the skill of these players. The only comments they had were to “get a better violin”. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be able to play such pieces, and yet they manage to pull it off every time. These people have gone to all-state and I’m glad that I get to be close to them and see that they are still people too. The work that they put into music can be applied anywhere in life. I’m grateful for the people that are around me that make me inspired so that one day, I can be stand partners with them in all-state. :)
