What part of the ACHS Music Program has had the most impact on you and why? I would say Orchestra because I got to play an instrument I love every day and improve on what I was lacking. It has influenced me to further pursue music in college.
What would you say to your freshman self about the Music program if you could? I would say join Vocal Ensemble sooner because it's been really fun, but I only got to experience a part of a year since this pandemic started.
