The Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association is proud to announce the acceptance of Abby Monroe, former principal cellist of the Youth Symphony Orchestra (YSO), into Interlochen Center for the Arts.
Abby joined SFYSA in the 7th grade, initially as a member of the Intermezzo String Orchestra, she quickly moved into the Youth Philharmonia ensemble and finally into YSO, SFYSA's flagship ensemble. She soon became a mentor for younger students at SFYSA and during her sophomore year in high school, was the first recipient of the Allie M. Norris Youth Leader Scholarship.
Abby fell in love with Interlochen after attending a summer camp and will complete her remaining two years of high school at Interlochen.
We send her off with the best wishes for a bright future!
Our Mission is to inspire and engage the youth of Northern New Mexico's multicultural communities through excellent music education, the guidance of music professionals, and performance opportunities from small ensemble to full orchestra in Jazz, Mariachi and Orchestra.
