Cassidy Teng (cello, composer)
I would like to run for librarian because I would think the job would be interesting and I'd like the opportunity to study all the different parts in the music. I would make a good librarian because I'm organized and responsible, and I'll always do my job to the best of my ability.

Jinwoo Baik (violin)
I want to run for librarian because it's important that all music is properly prepared for Symphony players. Vote Jinwoo Baik for librarian for an organized and efficient Symphony Orchestra.

Joanne Wang (violin)
I would like run for LHS's Symphony Orchestra's Librarian in order to maintain the numbers of copies that everyone gets in order to keep the orchestra together

Lindsey Forg (viola)
As I was Orchestra President last year, and this is my third year in Symphony, I really know how things work in this orchestra, and I can learn from any setbacks we had last year in order to make this year great, such as getting orchestra apparel faster, more orchestra breakfasts, events, etc. I coordinated Viola apparel in Rep freshman year, and coordinated all the Violas wearing tiaras and golden hats at Pops last year. I am very enthusiastic about this year in Symphony, and I want to make it as amazing as possible!

Daniel Ko (violin)
I am running for Symphony Orchestra president because I feel that this is an opportunity to showcase my leadership skills in an environment I am comfortable with- music. I love being able to play in this group and I'd love to lead it by fundraising, managing orchestra apparel, and organizing events for the orchestra such as the end-of-the-year barbecue.

Symphony orchestra is the crossroads of new blood and years of experience. The majority of this orchestra have risen from Repertoire Orchestra as the finest players in their section, who have proven themselves to be motivated to continue to grow. The ascended bring new energy, talent, and identity to this orchestra, but even with the new vitality that this orchestra is blessed with, we still face obstacles in our path to glory. The challenges this group faces are essentially the same as the ones we faced in Repertoire Orchestra. A sense of community, responsibility, and character continue to be our biggest adversaries. A disorganized mob is no more of an orchestra as a pile of marble is a city. We need leaders. We need someone who will carry the torch and cast light on the non-technical challenges that plague the most gifted orchestras. We need leaders who will unite and rally the people in times of struggle and defeat. We are a unique orchestra, capable of achieving heights nobody else can, not a transitory confederation of selfish players, fruitlessly competing with each other to get into Chamber. We need someone who will represent us as who we deserve to be. If I am chosen as one of our leaders, this dream will not remain a dream. A prosperous term as former president of Repertoire Orchestra has only inspired me to continue my mission. Under the rays of progress shed by its former leaders, a disheartened crowd transformed itself into a strong orchestra, won its first gold MICCA medal, and received the first spirit wear Repertoire Orchestra has ever seen. Now, this torch of progress passes to you, Symphony Orchestra. It’s time to seize our own future where we are recognized as an emerging superpower, working, helping each other as one, unconquerable union.
