Seaside High cellist Robert Percell to play at Carnagie Hall

Robert Percell, a 9th grader at Seaside High School, made his solo debut performance with the San Jose Chamber Orchestra on January 18 in Santa Clara. Seaside High music teacher Theresa Hruby was there, and sent this picture of Percell playing.

"Robert's performance went exceptionally well. He played beautifully," she told me in an email message.

Robert began playing cello at age 5, and he has been a member of the San Jose Youth Symphony since age 8. He recently auditioned and was accepted into a National Honor Orchestra and will play in Carnegie Hall this February.

My colleague Dennis Taylor is preparing a story about Robert that will appear in the print edition of the Herald sometime soon. Keep an eye out for it. In the meantime, congratulations, Robert! All that hard work is paying off!
