Student Selected to Perform at Carnegie Hall
Posted on January 29, 2012
Karina Lin, a freshman at Westview High School, has been selected for the 2012 American High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall. She will be a part of the Honors Band as an oboe player. Participation in the Honors Orchestra, Honors Band, and Honors Choir is limited to the highest rated high school performers from across North America and select international schools.
Karina Lin auditioned this fall for the Honors Performance Series and was accepted after a review by the Selection Board committee. She will join other performers from the United States and Canada for a special performance at world-famous Carnegie Hall.
Karina Lin studies music with Electra Reed and is a member of Westview Gold (under the direction of Jeri Webb) and San Diego Youth Symphony (under the direction of Jeff Edmons). She was inspired to pursue the oboe and is continually encouraged by Jay Posterano (Mesa Verde Middle School music director). Last year’s Mesa Verde Middle School’s Select Ensemble won 1st place at The Heritage Festival of Gold, which took place in Chicago Symphony Hall. It was the first time a middle school placed first in the 30 year history of this festival. Additionally, Karina Lin is active in Chinese Evangelical Church’s Youth Group and other school organizations.
Finalists will come together for five days in February 2012 in New York City to have the opportunity to learn from Jeffrey Grogan, work with other Finalists, and get a taste of New York City. The 2012 conductors are Dr. Jeffery Ames, Dr. Charles Peltz and Jeffrey Grogan. The performance is available to the public and specially-invited representatives from collegiate music programs.
