Recognition for TGS musicians

At the year-end band and orchestra concerts, director Dr. Christie Blute recognized Gregory School musicians for their many musical successes over this academic year, and also began a new tradition of honoring our seniors: Band and orchestra seniors received individual plaques and their names will also be engraved on a plaque that hangs in the music room.

This year's seniors are Leo Gruenstein and Kieran Lee.
