November 2019 Music Student of the Month – Christian Heisinger

High School trombone player, Christian Heisinger, is a fine example for his fellow student musicians.  Band director Darren Dix says that he is always eager to help and encourage his band mates.  He loves making music and has played the violin and the clarinet. Be sure to catch him and the High School Orchestra perform at the Orcas Center on Thursday Dec 12, at 7pm. Go for it, Christian!

“I like the feeling of being able to work with other people.  There are greater harmonies and melodies, all because of the different voices.”

Orcas High School Band member Christian Heisinger
