This particular competition was the first part of the annual TAPPS Music Championship, during which students can score points for the Henderson Cup.
On April 19, the Varsity Symphony will participate in the second part of the competition where they will perform as a full group and be judged on their concert selection. This year the Varsity Symphony will be performing "Capriccio Espagnol" by Rimsky-Korsakov and "Rites of Tamburo" by Robert W. Smith.
