In 4th grade, Maddox learnt to play the cello in the school music program, before picking up the violin. Strings Director, Pamela Wright, is impressed with his musical ear and knowledge of instruments. Now in 8th grade, Maddox says he is committed to participating in the school music program until he graduates. We support his choice! Congratulations, we look forward to hearing you and your group perform on April 6!
