While out on assignment today I spoke to a few students and asked them why they decided to choose orchestra as their elective in middle school.

Here are their responses:

"I wanted to play the violin. I'm also usually a quiet person, so I don't think my personality would have fit in with cheerleading or band. I'm more into the classical scene." - Madison Escalante, 12

"I wanted to play cello." - Christian Gomez, 11

"I wanted to play an instrument so I picked orchestra. I decided to play the viola because it's not as squeaky as the violin. The viola has a deeper sound that I like." - Heidi Sabedra, 12

"I've always wanted to play the bass. I already know how to play piano and I'm also working on the violin right now. I'm in two orchestra classes right now." - Samuel Davis, 14
