MONTICELLO, Ind (WLFI) — Addie Tribbett, a senior at Twin Lakes High School will be stepping out of her band class and onto a national stage.

She was chosen to be a part of the 2019 Honor Orchestra of America.

“I didn't really know if I was gonna make it in but there was that little bit of hope,” said Tribbett.

That little bit of hope turned into Tribbett securing a big spot in the Honor Orchestra of America. She will be playing her french horn in this year's concert.

Honor Orchestra of America is a program that selects high schoolers who audition from all over the nation to perform at a national level. Being selected requires being a highly skilled instrument player.

“By eighth grade I kind of decided that I wanted to do music as my life, like, I wanted to devote myself to it and kind of see if I could take it on as a job,” said Tribbett.

As graduation approaches she's been looking into ways to continue her future in music.

“I'm gonna go into music. I want to do horn performance in college. I really wanna go to IU, their Jacob School of Music but I don't audition there until February” said Tribbett.

Being selected to play in this prestigious orchestra has brought her a sense of reassurance.

“I want to go into a field where there's probably a ton of people who are great musicians and landing a job like that would be very difficult and so I think just being on this national level is really exciting for me,” said Tribbett.

Tribbett said she owes much of her success to her parents, lessons teacher and high school band teacher.

“I'm always practicing, always trying to do something musicwise and I think once I get achievements like this, they've been so supportive, they encourage me so much,” said Tribbett.

The Honor Orchestra of America will be playing in the Music for All National Festival, presented by Yamaha March 13-16, 2019. The concert will be at Butler University. It's free and open to the public.
