Gliding onto the ice at the Allen Community Ice Rink Saturday, orchestra seniors are skating into their second social of the year. 

Violinist and frequent skater Blair Ma is excited to join his classmates on the ice.

“Last month I had a lot of fun getting dinner with most of the seniors,” Ma said. “I love skating and can’t wait to see how everyone does. Hopefully we’ll be able to make it to the rink one more time before we graduate.”

One of two senior representatives on the officer council, violinist Caroline Attmore believes these events are a great chance to make memories before graduation.

“I help organize socials throughout the year and work to create a sense of community with our 2020 class,” Attmore said. “It’s really hard to coordinate things that people want to do, especially with really busy schedules, but it’s been a lot of fun so far. I’m really looking forward to our day at Lake Lewisville in May, I know the seniors last year had a lot of fun.”

 Unable to make the last event, cellist Arsh Guntakal is grateful for the senior socials.

“It’s been a lot of work rehearsing with pit orchestra for Matilda on top of college applications and schoolwork so I’m looking forward to skating,” Guntakal said. “I can’t even remember the last time I’ve skated. We will never be the same age and be around each other all again some I’m trying to get out as much as I can.”
