HRAI String Ensemble Earn Superior Plus Award

Congratulations to the six members of the Helena Raskob Arts Institute String Ensemble, who were awarded Superior Plus, which is the highest grade possible, at the Delaware State Music Teachers Association Ensemble Festival, held last Sunday at the Music School of Delaware. The Ensemble performers for this event were Sophia Chen '24, Michelle Zhang '24, Alex Xu '25, Ryan Dam '26, Daniel Qi '26, and McKayla Hwang '27. This was the first time a string ensemble participated in the Ensemble Festival.
The group practices chamber music before and after school as schedules allow. Under the leadership of Daniel Qi '26, violin, they performed "Nimrod", by Edward Elgar, and "Notturno" from the Second String Quartet by Alexandre Borodine. This recognition for their performance affirms the excellence they put forth in all of their work.
