Wisconsin Hills 8th grader, Arisha Sobhani, has been selected to perform in the Honors Junior Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in June.
Music directors from around the world recognize and nominate their most talented student performers for this orchestra. Those students are then invited to participate in a vigorous application process. The students must submit an application, an audition recording and a biography for review by an expert board of music professionals. Only the most accomplished musicians are chosen.
Arisha started playing the violin when she was 6 years old. She has competed in WSMA solo/ensemble festival and has progressed to the State competition all three years of middle school. In 2018 she was awarded an exemplary rating at the State level. She has played in Wisconsin State Honors Orchestra, Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, the Davidson Chamber Ensemble and of course her school orchestras. In 2016 she was a runner up in the MYSO concerto competition and in 2018 she soloed with Wisconsin Hills Middle School.
Arisha and other students from around the world will travel to New York City this summer to work with Master Conductors and then perform at Carnegie Hall. Arisha is looking forward to seeing the sights in New York City, studying with other accomplished musicians and fulfilling the dream of playing at Carnegie Hall.
