HSO Concerto Competition Runner-Up, April 2018

The biannual Hopkins Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition was held in late January, 2018. In addition to the two winners, two runners-up were named, including Gabriela Nisly, flute.

(They were given performances with the Hopkins Concert Orchestra the following fall of 2018.)

They were both invited to the March 2018 photo session, although only Gabriela was able to make it.
