FLORENCE, S.C. -- Three graduates of Florence High School recently were chosen by audition for the Honors Performance Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia.

Florence violinists Simran Singh, Isabella Ouyang, and violist Nav Singh spent six days in Sydney, where they studied under master conductors, experienced the highlights of the city and got to know accomplished musicians from around the world.
