Fred and Maryalice (Mary) Hall, of Danielsville, are not your typical college students.
The brother and sister are both musically talented and have used that love of music to travel to places and have experiences they otherwise might not have had.
Their most exciting experience so far occurred last month when they were able to travel as part of the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony to Los Angeles where they performed in the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
“We got to visit the Warner Brothers sound stage and see lots of other behind the scenes things,” Fred said. Some of those things included getting to meet some of the great composers who bring movie music to life.
Their parents, Fred and Marla Hall, also traveled to L.A. to see their children’s performance.
And this was not their first big trip with the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony – in 2011 they played at New York City’s Lincoln Center. While there, they also did some sightseeing, including attending the Broadway Play, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” where they met Daniel Ratcliffe (of Harry Potter fame) backstage.
The pair was homeschooled until 2010, when they enrolled in Madison County High School (Fred graduated in 2011, Mary in 2012). They were already musically trained, having taken extensive lessons, Fred playing the euphonium (a smaller version of the tuba) and Mary, the flute. The brother and sister both credit their musical achievements to their parents, who instilled a love of music in them from an early age.
Maryalice and Fred Hall of Danielsville recently traveled to Los Angeles to perform with the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony.
