The students played their music pieces confidently and beautifully but the most important thing is that the students demonstrated mature behavior that inspired students, teachers, and the audience alike. I firsthand saw and experienced how caring they are to each other, how they boost each other’s confidence and how well behaved they are. The students developed newfound relationships with each other that they will carry with them the rest of their lives. I believe that this festival not only gave our students the opportunity to perform with a professional conductor but more so how to adapt to different situations, challenges, environments and people in a very kind and positive way.
Congratulations to Michele Vo, Bridget Deng, Christina Yu, Ho Yuan Chen, Johnny Mindorff, Jenna Song, Polly Peng, Kamen Ma, Lydia Lai, Patrick Yu, Adia Heyres-Semrau, Robin Li, Sheryl Zha, Toby Tang. You embody the qualities that Leman students should strive for and we are extremely proud of your accomplishments!
