Spanish Fork Junior High School's combined orchestra was paid a special visit by renowned bassist Ranaan Meyer for a practice session at Spanish Fork High School on Friday. The school was selected for Meyer's "The World That We All Deserve Through Music" program, which sees Meyer travel to various school to help inspire the students to excel in music.

"Once they met him and saw how energetic he was and passionate, I think it really helped them put a lot more passion into their own playing," said orchestra teacher Angela Harman.

Meyer had written a song for the orchestra to learn, which Harman said was a "super difficult" composition. Harman spent a few hours working with the orchestra Friday morning to help them polish their performance, but the goal was more about inspiration than preparation for a show. "I think it's opened up their eyes to see what possibilities and potential they have and how far you can really go," Harman said.  SEE THE Daily Herald PAGE
