Crestview boy adds his talent to Emerald Coast Sinfonietta

Published: Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 06:35 PM.

Aylor has had Lucas in her groups for more than two years, with performances at Universal Studios and Walt Disney World in Orlando. She praised his progress and his mom, Angela Kornegay's, support.

"He's doing great. He's progressed so fast. I was really pleased," Aylor said. "His mother comes to every lesson. I can't say enough about how much she has been such a part of his progression."

Aylor prepared the ensemble well for their recent performance, although Lucas said he was aware that his audience included a Broadway diva.

"I wasn't scared at all," he said. "I was surprised I wasn't."

"He enjoys life, that's for sure," Aylor said. "He's one of those (students) that makes you enjoy teaching. When you see that joy, you know it's worth every minute."

Change of venue

Aylor directed youth orchestras, including the popular High Voltage electric string orchestra, which she hopes to reform under Sinfonia, for the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra.
