SHERBURNE There's an old adage that says practice makes perfect.
While perfection might still be a ways off, practice is certainly paying off for Sherburne-Earlville eighth grade student Eva Westbrook.
Come June, Westbrook alongside approximately 130 middle school students from the United States, Canada and select international schools will pack up her alto sax and make the trip to New York City to play on stage at Carnegie Hall as part of the 2014 Middle School Honors Instrumental Ensemble.
Each year, the Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall hand-picks talented students from all over the country to perform in the spotlight under the direction of nationally and internationally renowned conductors. The experience provides students an opportunity to showcase their talents, play in front of representatives from collegiate and professional music programs, and explore the opportunities they have in the long music career ahead of them.
