Five Musicians Headed to Sr All State Orchestra

By Colleen Tan
Orchestra Director

Students from across Indiana auditioned in a highly competitive process for the 2022 Indiana High School Sr All State Orchestra. Canterbury School is proud to announce that we have earned five string positions of the fifty-eight total string positions in the orchestra: violist Collin Campbell (‘23), violist Sarah Krabach (‘25), cellist Maria Tan (‘25), cellist Edward Sun (‘23) and violinist Jessica Zhou (‘22). Canterbury was the only independent school to send students to the string section of the All-State Orchestra. We were proud to have two freshmen selected.

This will be a first for Canterbury, sending a principal (first player in the section) and two assistant principal players (second chair in the section):  Edward Sun will serve as assistant principal cello and Jessica Zhou will play the assistant principal second violin position. Freshman Maria Tan earned the top cello position in the orchestra will perform in the role of Principal Cello for the orchestra.

Students will perform in concert with the All State Orchestras on January 15, 2022 at the Embassy Theater, time to be announced as part of the Indiana Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference.
