Senior violinist and Orchestra concertmaster Chelsea Walz reflected on her final All County experience, saying “I honestly really enjoyed this weekend. The conductor was amazing, the music was super fun to learn, and it was a wonderful experience to have with my friends. If I could go back and do it all again, I would!”
