Fairfax High School Orchestra accepted to play at Carnegie Hall

Fairfax High School Orchestra students have the distinct honor of being invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City this coming year. As many of you know, Carnegie Hall is a world-renowned performance venue that has hosted such famous musicians as cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinists Isaac Stern and Itzhak Perlman, to name a few. Needless to say, it is an exciting and amazing opportunity for our young musicians.

This trip is a part of the music department’s curriculum and allows the students to continue the process of self-evaluation and mastery. The spring music department trips have proved to foster growth in our students educationally, musically, and socially

The Fairfax High School Orchestras consistently receive Superior rating at the local and national level along the Eastern Seaboard. Gerald Fowkes, the director of orchestras at Fairfax High Schools, is dedicated to broadening our students’ horizons, expanding their knowledge of music, working together and enabling them to be ambassadors of the Commonwealth.

Gerald Fowkes says, “Musicians of all ages dream of performing on the famous stage at Carnegie Hall. This is a remarkable opportunity for these students and it is a testament to the commitment they have made to their craft. Everyone wants to play Carnegie Hall. It’s one of the best, if not the best, in the world. To be on that stage performing in a place where Tchaikovsky stood and where Leonard Bernstein conducted, it’s going to be a thrill. We truly appreciate all of the ways our community has supported our efforts to make this dream a reality.”

Please help us get to Carnegie. Each of the 60+ students need to raise $1500 for this trip in mid-February.  The funds raised will be split among all of the students going on the trip.

Thank you.
