Sally Hatfield, a freshman at Southlake Carroll, has earned an impressive accolade: She was the second-place winner of the Lone Star Youth Orchestra’s Concerto Competition.
Based in Irving, the Lone Star Youth Orchestra (LSYO) is the only tuition-free youth orchestra in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It consists of middle school and high school students from 14 Metroplex school districts. The orchestra performs tonight at 7 p.m. at the Irving Arts Center’s Carpenter Hall, and the community is invited to celebrate American composers in “Made in America!”
Hatfield plays French horn under the direction of Jay Bach. He says, “I would certainly like to congratulate Sally on this fine accomplishment and wish her the best. Sally has a bright future and is a valued member of the Wind Symphony.”
During the holidays, Hatfield and several friends organized an ensemble called “The Just Brass Band.” They played for donations in Southlake Town Square and raised nearly $2,000 for Parkinson’s and breast cancer research. This summer, Hatfield will perform at Carnegie Hall with the Carroll Wind Symphony.
