Bridgewater High Schooler Takes Her Talent to Carnegie Hall

BRHS Sophomore, Sandya Subramanian, at Carnegie

BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater-Raritan High School student Sandya Subramanian performed a viola recital at Carnegie Weill Hall in New York City Feb 19.

Subramanian played “Gigue” by Veracini, and one judge commented that her performance was finely rendered and had excellent distinction between articulated attacks and legato passagework.

Subramanian started playing viola when she was 10 years old, and, in addition to being part of the high school symphonic orchestra under director Dan Musacchio, she also pursues lessons with teacher Sarah Mederos.

"Music is relaxing for both player and the listeners,” said Subramanian, who gets invited to recite at local churches during services. “It is an amazing experience to give back to my community through music. After I play my instrument, the seniors surround me with hugs, wishes and their blessings. It is great to share their excitement.”

Subramanian's debut to Carnegie Stern Hall was as a gold key award recipient for her poetry during the 2015 National Award Ceremony for Scholastic Arts and Writing contest. Her other pieces also received two gold keys at 2016 NE Regionals, and a silver key and honorable mention in 2017 NE Regionals Scholastic Arts and Writing.

Aside from her viola work, Subramanian is involved in a number of organizations at the high school

"It is great to be part of BRHS," she said. "In addition to various levels of academic programs, we have a lot of opportunities."
