Lynchburg City School students will represent nearly one-third of the Junior Southwest Regional Orchestra when it performs in Roanoke this spring. Students from twenty-three schools from Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Roanoke and the Harrisonburg Valley area tried out for the orchestra recently. Lynchburg City School’s extensive strings program helped students in seventh through ninth grades prepare for the competition. Students begin taking strings lessons in Kindergarten and continue through their senior year. Many ultimately receive scholarships for their talents. The Junior Southwest Regional Orchestra results prove that our students stand out amongst the regional competition. The following Lynchburg students will play as part of the Junior Southwest Regional Orchestra:
