Last June, Tasha Schapiro – now a senior at Pennsbury High School – was one of five musicians to win the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County’s (YOBC’s) Annual Concerto Competition.
“This is an outstanding group of young musicians who are great representatives of the organization and, indeed, of young people throughout the county,” says Diana Nolan, YOBC Auditions Coordinator and Office Manager.
A French horn player, Tasha has been nurturing her musical talents and aspirations since childhood. As a fourth grader, she fell in love with the instrument through a chance encounter with a neighbor who had just started playing it. “I loved how it sounded and just decided, this is what I want to play,” Tasha recalls.
