Jenny Dong ’21, a Bolles boarding student from China, performed in the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra Philharmonic’s fall concert. Staged November 10 in downtown Jacksonville, the concert included Tchaikovsky’s 1812 and music from Copland’s ballet. It was the orchestra’s first formal concert of the 2019-20 season.
Dong has been playing viola since the sixth grade and the piano since she was four years old. When she came to Bolles last year, she started percussion with the Bolles Band.
“Joining JSYO has definitely helped me improve as a musician and a person and I am very grateful for meeting and working with this amazing group of young musicians,” Dong said.
