Shortridge 150th Anniversary Concert April 10th!



The Shortridge Alumni Association  continues its schedule of upcoming events to celebrate the school’s 150th anniversary with an appearance of the 16-member Metropolitan Youth Orchestra (MYO) on Friday, April 10, 6-9PM (ET). MYO will Caleb Mills Auditorium along with a guest performance by 17-year-old Jeremy Green, a nationally known violist for his renditions of contemporary music that resonates with youth on this instrument.

A classically-trained entertainer, Jeremy is a native of San Antonio, TX. He was introduced to the viola at age 10, an instrument rarely played apart from a full orchestra, Jeremy began posting popular music covers on YouTube and in the summer of 2014, he covered “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, which created an admired and loyal following. As a result, he has enjoyed playing at various venues across the nation from Carnegie Hall, to large corporations; he recently participated in the Grand Opening for Disney’s new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts Theater in Orlando, FL.
