"Practice, practice, practice..."
Izzy's hard work has paid off! She was was accepted to the National Honor Orchestra and will playing in New York's Carnegie Hall on June 25th.
Izzy began playing the violin at the start of 3rd grade.
She's been a student of the Simba School of Music and has played with the orchestras at Clovis Elementary and Clark Intermediate, both under the direction of Krista Moore.
Growing in so many ways...
Izzy has auditioned and performed with the Fresno-Madera County Honor Orchestra for the last 5 years. She most recently performed before a judge at the solo festival at Fresno State and received a Superior rating, which qualified her to move on to the State level of competition. Izzy has also performed with the Fresno Youth Orchestra , attended the Oregon Suzuki and YMCA Sequoia Music Camps, and played many local "gigs" with the Simba String Benders. Some of her most exciting achievements include being named outstanding 7th grade string musician and being able to perform at Uncle Zig and Auntie Andrea's wedding this past May!
Playing the violin has done so much for Izzy: helped her build a strong work ethic (she practices almost every night ); taught her how to tackle demanding tasks; cultivated a sense of playfulness and joy; and allowed her to experience the ability to bring beauty to life!
While in New York, Izzy will room with other students, get to take a New York City tour, and see a Broadway play. Finally, Izzy will get to play with and learn from an amzing group of musicians and master conductor. The program cost for each performer is $1849, plus the cost of airfaire, which is approximately $600. We would be so thankful if you are able to donate to Izzy's fundraising efforts!
