The GCHS Strings, Symphony, Chamber, and Electric Rock orchestras performed on Tuesday, May 8th, 2018, at their last PAC performance of the year.

The performance, featuring songs such as “Remote Control,” by Richard Meyer and “No One Is Alone” from the musical “Into the Woods,” was the only event of the year featuring every high school orchestra.

The performance was followed by the annual Orchestra Banquet, during which graduating seniors in the Orchestra are expected to give a “Senior Will,” a time-honored tradition in which a senior “leaves” varying attributes, be it memories, traits, or even physical objects, to their underclassmen.

Cayla Madden, a graduating seniors, who is both a first violin in several of the orchestras as well as a teacher’s aid to Dr. Hill, gave her will on Tuesday.

“It [My experience with orchestra] has been unforgettable,” Madden said. “You grow attached to people, and create this special bond that everyone should have the chance to experience. All of the after-school rehearsals, the Applebee’s dates after concerts, going to NYC, you don’t do those things with just anyone. As a senior, I watched so many talented friends leave their will to underclassmen to help them grow as musicians and people; that’s whats so special about the wills. We leave a legacy behind, and it carries on even without us to carry it. I’m so thankful for my friends in orchestra, Dr. Hill, and music, as I take this next step in my life to pursue music education.”
