Music students will present their annual Fall Concert on Monday, Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. in Andrews Hall. Doors will open at 6:45 p.m. This concert represents the first seven weeks of rehearsals for Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra, Choir, and Advanced Musicianship students.
The music program at University High School is filled with talented individuals like senior Cole Reinholt. Recently, music instructor Daniel Knox chatted with Cole about music, and here is what he had to say.
DK: How long have you been playing?
CR: 7 years
DK: What do you like most about making music?
CR: The people you meet and the chills you get when something sounds amazing.
DK: When did you know that music is important to you?
CR: Eighth grade was when I really got into music, what kind I liked, what I wanted to play, etc.
DK: What are you most excited about for the upcoming concert?
CR: I’m excited about listening to the all the other (ensemble) performances and (playing the wind ensemble piece) Infinite Hope.
DK: What is your favorite kind of music to listen to?
CR: I like to listen to jazz and rock.
DK: What are your plans for next year?
CR: I plan to go to college for biomedical or mechanical engineering.
DK: What would you tell someone who is trying to get into music?
Stick with it. It is super hard, and unless you are like Miles Davis, there is no way your solos or anything will be great the first try. But it is definitely worth the work because of the people you meet and the skill you learn. And making music is fun.
