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.
