Hi my name is Lucy I am one of the player representatives for CYO. I first joined the orchestra in 2017 where I began playing in the Intermediate Orchestra, having already played the flute for four years. I now play first flute in the Senior Orchestra, and sometimes the piccolo Throughout my time at CYO I have seen the orchestra progress and overcome numerous challenges. My hope is to encourage players are more involved in this process.
