BHS student musician to play at Benaroya Hall
Bainbridge High school student Shelby Sundquist will be one of only three dozen talented young musicians from 11 high schools who will perform in Seattle’s Benaroya Hall as part of the seventh annual Ten Grands Seattle “Concert for a Cause” musical variety showcase at 7 p.m. Friday, April 4.
Selected musicians will appear both onstage with the featured Ten Grands professional pianists, as well as in the Samuel & Althea Stroum Grand Lobby for a special early concert event starting at 6 p.m.
Student musicians at the Ten Grands concert are from seven counties in Western Washington. They were among award winners at regional competitions at the Washington State Solo & Ensemble Contest, a program of WIAA/WMEA (Washington Interscholastic Activities Association/Washington Music Educators Association).
On stage performers are from Bainbridge, Camas, Edmonds-Woodway, Ellensburg, Issaquah, Juanita, Kamiak, Shorewood and Stadium high schools. Each musician will be showcased during brief solos, and then be part of a group performance.
Lobby performers include a string sextet from Ellensburg High School, a flute quartet and trombone trio from Juanita High School, a flute quintet from Kamiak High School (Mukilteo), and three duets. The duets include instrumentalists from Sehome High School in Bellingham and vocalists from both Issaquah and Bremerton.
Sundquist is a clarinet player. Her teacher is Chris Thomas.
She is the only student musician from Bainbridge participating in the event.
A limited amount of tickets remain available. Proceeds support the Seattle Symphony’s education programs and other select nonprofit music education organizations.
Tickets, starting at $42, may be purchased at www.seattlesymphony.org, by calling the symphony ticket office at 206-215-4747 and by visiting Benaroya Hall.
