Youth wins orchestra award

Gabriel Tachell, a seventh-grader at Tolt Middle School, won

the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra's Frances Walton

Youth Music Award. The clarinetist won the intermediate-level orchestra award.

The scholarship is merit-based and awarded to youths who exemplify

ideals of musicianship and service to the orchestra and community.

The scholarship honors Frances Walton who was the founding

conductor of the Olympic Youth Symphony (now the Bellevue Youth

Symphony Orchestra) 35 years ago.

Tachell will perform with the symphony at its free holiday concert at

7 p.m. on Dec. 13 in the Wintergarden at Bellevue Place.
