PORT ANGELES: High school orchestra plays Carnegie Hall

Port Angeles High School’s symphony orchestra played to its largest audience ever when it performed in one of the world’s most renowned concert halls Sunday.

Orchestra members received a standing ovation from more than a thousand people after their Carnegie Hall performance, Director Ron Jones said.

“They played very, very well,” Jones said of the 77 students who traveled to New York City for the performance. “It was wonderful.”

The orchestra’s string quartet performance was recorded by the nationally broadcast television program “Good Morning America” on Monday.
