Each year the Auburn Chamber Orchestra (ACO) awards scholarships to graduating seniors in recognition and appreciation of their participation in ACO during their high school years. The orchestra is happy to welcome so many capable local students to its ranks and is especially thrilled to congratulate eligible seniors with financial awards. This year, ACO is proud to present its yearly scholarship to Meghan Smith. Well done, Meghan.

Meghan started playing the violin in fourth grade and joined Auburn Chamber Orchestra in November 2015, beginning in the second violin section and currently playing the second chair in the first violin section. At ACO’s March 2018 “History’s Hometown Tribute” concert, Meghan played the first violin in the ACO string quartet.

Throughout her high school years, Meghan has played with the Auburn High School orchestra, All-County Orchestra, and Area All-State orchestra. Her other school activities include music honor society and varsity tennis. In her free time, Meghan enjoys fishing and bowling.

Meghan, who studies violin with Judy Herschberger, will be attending Onondaga Community College in Fall 2018, majoring in music education.
