Trumpet, Mark Inouye Masterclass
Serena Chen, a 17-year-old senior at St. Francis High School, has been a member of the Senior Symphony for the past three years. She was accepted into the 2018 Interlochen Trumpet Intensive, 2020 Boston University Tanglewood Institute, 2019 and 2020 Brevard Music Center, and 2020 Interlochen Orchestra with merit award scholarship. In 2019, she also played principal trumpet with the HPS National Honor Band at Carnegie Hall. Aside from trumpet, Serena enjoys running, photoshopping her pet cat, Catbalevsky (named after Dmitri Kabalevsky) onto old Snoopy comics, making bad puns, shuffling her Spotify playlist because she can’t ever decide on what to listen to, or doing any combination of the activities detailed above. Her favorite orchestra piece is Pops Hoe Down.
