Brennan West and Humberto Trevino

Ten Akins orchestra and band students got the chance to perform with dozens of members of the Austin Symphony Orchestra during a set of performances on campus on Jan. 25. The performances are part of the ASO’s annual high school concert program, where professional musicians perform at various Austin-area high schools. The 45-minute concert allows high school music students to play side-by-side with the Symphony. Performers with the Akins Orchestra included Pedro Salas, Fabiola Rodrigues Flores, Hailee Rowley, Dominyk Yanez, and Josiah Orta. Musicians with the Akins Band included Jayden Medina, Carolina Sanchez, Francisca Williams, Carlos Garcia, and Arianna Saez.
