Musical groups from Roosevelt rose to the top in three divisions at the 40th Annual Northwest Orchestra Festival.
From the heartwarming file:
In an unusual twist, the Roosevelt Symphony Orchestra performed in the finals competition under the baton of a student conductor. Director Edwards explained to the audience that a family emergency – the death of her father – had caused her to miss 10 days of school in the weeks leading up to the festival. Edwards commended the musicians for their hard work in her absence, and in recognition of that dedication, invited student conductor -- bassist Will Langlie-Miletich -- to conduct the orchestra in its finals performance of the fourth Movement of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
The Roosevelt performance took top honors, Kamiak High School from Mukilteo, Wash. placed second and Seattle’s Garfield Symphony Orchestra was third.
