Histand participates in Goshen College Orchestra

GOSHEN, Ind. — A Franconia Conference native is participating in the Goshen College Orchestra during the fall semester, under the direction of Associate Professor of Music John Graulty.

Elena Histand, daughter of Steven and Bronwyn Histand of Telford, plays bass. The freshman collegiate studies major is a 2006 graduate of Christopher Dock Mennonite High School and attends Blooming Glen Mennonite Church.

The Goshen College Orchestra is a group that varies in size and repertoire, from chamber orchestra to full philharmonic dimensions. Formed in the 1950s, it has actively performed standard symphonic repertoire ever since. The group presents concerts of major orchestral works each semester. In addition, it accompanies the choirs, operas and student winners of the Concerto-Aria Competition.
