The Holland High School Symphony Brings Back a Senior Tradition

This last evening the Holland High School Orchestra Seniors joined the HHS Symphony Orchestra to bring back the tradition of the seniors performing in commencement cap and gown. This tradition harkens back to the 1990’s when seniors performed with the orchestra held at the Holland Civic Center. This is an honor and recognition of their contributions made to the Holland Orchestra Program. Pictured here is Senior Concert Master Evelyn Timmermann conducting the tuning of the orchestra one last time.

Congratulations to three outstanding seniors who were recognized at the Final Orchestra Concert on May 20 held at the Holland High School Performing Arts Center. Evelyn Timmermann received the National Orchestra Award along with a $1000 stipend for summer study. This is in recognition of her outstanding support and performance with the Holland Orchestras. Angela Juarez and Julia Ortiz were recognized as exemplary senior musicians who have given back to our program through outstanding performances at festivals, and the caring, helpful manner to those around them to support learning in our ensembles. Congratulations Seniors.
