January 2019 Music Student of the Month – Kai Ross

Kai first had his ear on a viola played at an Orcas Chamber Music Festival Concert years ago, leading him to pick up the instrument at school.  Besides simply loving the sound, he sees music opening the doors to travel!  May you go far, Kai Ross.  Congratulations on being January’s Student Musician of the Month!

“Music feels like it does something to your brain to help you. I feel relaxed when I play.”

says Orcas High School Strings member Kai Ross

 The Music Student of the Month series recognizes Orcas Island Public School musicians who work hard at their musical skills and whose love of music is an inspiration to their fellow student musicians.  Thank you so much to the Orcas Island businesses who are sponsoring this monthly series throughout the 2018-19 school year that recognizes the efforts of student musicians and the value of school music!
