Nearly 30 student musicians from the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District joined the La Mirada Symphony on Tuesday, Feb. 18 to perform a musical salute to the United States at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The students, who represent the District’s middle school Honor Band, played two pieces with the professional symphony: “The Courage March” and “Voyage to the Edge of the World.” They entertained about 300 elementary school students at each of the concert’s two shows.
The students who performed in the concert include: Juan Miranda, Angela Solis-Diaz and Destiny Salazar from Benton Middle School; Chris Panameno, Tyus Tso, Philip Jiang, Angel Escobar, Brittany Ortiz, Raymond Cruz-Cerda and Zoey Castillo from Corvallis Middle School; Aiko Yamada, Daniel Landre, Jane Youn, Jorge Suarez, Kelly Peck, Matthew Casillas, Myles Briones and Samantha Machtolff from Hutchinson Middle School; Samantha Vera, Alyssa Bernal, Abigail Torres and Luis Nava from Los Alisos Middle School; Elina Wang, Emily Nguyen, Jonathan Yu, Simon Lee and Young Cha from Los Coyotes Middle School; and Andrew Sandoval from Waite Middle School.
“Norwalk-La Mirada is known as the District that really fosters artistic talent, whether it’s performing or visual arts,” said NLMUSD Board President Margarita Rios. “Getting invited to play with a professional symphony and doing so very well just shows that our students are getting the guidance, tutelage and the encouragement to really hone their craft.”
