Congratulations to Ellie Cha, Glen Rock High School freshman, who was accepted into the North Jersey Region I HS Orchestra! This is a huge accomplishment for high school string students as the auditions are very challenging and extremely competitive.
“We are so very proud of Ellie’s hard work and dedication. She is a tremendously talented violinist,” said John Diomede, director of the GRHS Chamber Orchestra at Glen Rock Public Schools.
Ellie was one of 48 violinists accepted out of 210 who auditioned from the region. Even more impressive, Ellie is only in 9th grade and competed against violinists who have been playing 1-3 years more than her. Ellie is now eligible to audition for the NJ All-State Orchestra.
