Sydney is a ninth-grader at Darien High School. She has been playing the violin since she was five years old. From elementary to middle school, Sydney was in both her school's chorus and band before deciding to return all her focus to the violin. Since then, she has played in several orchestras, including her school orchestra, the YAP, and the CMI Orchestra at her violin teacher’s summer camp. She has also participated in musical volunteering activities and festivals, including a county festival and the CMEA Festival. Over the years, Sydney has developed a strong love for music and is excited to meet other students who feel the same.
