Carlmont’s annual instrumental music spring concert series is just around the corner.

The concert series includes performances from concert band and string orchestra on May 17,  the symphony band and symphony orchestra on May 18, and jazz ensembles and jazz combos on May 19.

Tickets to see the concerts can be purchased on the Carlmont instrumental music website.

For the music students who are seniors, it will be their final school performance before they graduate. 

Many of the seniors in instrumental music began playing in elementary school and have developed a passion for music.

Siobhan Ang, a senior who plays the violin, said, “I’ve been in symphony orchestra [at Carlmont] for four years. Being in music has always been a way for me to stay involved in my interests and get a break from academics.”

Some of these students have also acquired skills such as leadership and perseverance through volunteering at events like Save the Music or Music Mentoring.

The skills I’ve learned are key to succeeding at anything, and I’ll carry them with me in the future.”

— Kyle Kawakami

Senior Kyle Kawakami, who has played trumpet for nine years and is currently in the symphony orchestra, said, “Music has taught me how leadership and dedication can lead to a good final product like performing well at a concert. The skills I’ve learned are key to succeeding at anything, and I’ll carry them with me in the future.”

Not only has instrumental music impacted the lives of many seniors, but it has allowed them to affect the lives of younger students as well.

John DaBaldo, the Carlmont instrumental music director, said, “The seniors are an integral part of the success of the program. I see them as leaders who set the example for younger musicians through their commitment, talent, and hard work.”
