Six St. Markers have been accepted into the Central District Music Festival by the Massachusetts Music Educators Association. Ryder Henry '20, Grace Li '21, Waverly Shi '21, and Julian Yang '20 (all pictured here), along with Sophia Liu '18 and Richard Zhang '22 are the SM honorees.
The Central District Festival concerts will take place on Saturday, January 19, at Mechanics Hall in Worcester (snow date Monday, January 21). Waverly Shi and Richard Zhang play the violin, and will be performing with the District Orchestra. Ryder Henry (French horn), Grace Li (flute), Sophia Liu (flute), and Julian Yang (saxophone) will be playing in the District Band.
