Kimberly Garrison is one of the 53 student musicians who performed film, traditional and folk songs at Payson school district's orchestra concert: "Prelude to Spring."
The students from Rim Country Middle, Julia Randall and Payson Elementary schools were conducted by teacher Ron Sadlier.
"The students were happy with the program, proud of themselves and I was proud of them," Sadlier said.
"They have been playing and practicing anywhere from five months to five years," he said, so he tries to choose a variety of music that he can arrange so that both beginning and advanced students can showcase their talents.
"Concertmaster (first chair violinist) Rebecca Knauer did a fantastic job on her solo violin piece," Sadlier said.
The next concert is May 16. Sadlier hopes to add a wind instrument section to the orchestra by that time.
