Local Boy Makes Good

This young man was a student of mine last year.  I don't get to claim any credit for the success mentioned in this article, but I'm happy for him anyway :)
This week's Golden Apple goes to Sacramento trombonist Michael Wang, who was awarded Berklee College of Music's coveted Presidential Scholarship.

The four-year scholarship is valued at approximately $225,000 and covers tuition, housing and fees, school officials said. It is awarded each year to seven of the most talented young musicians across the world.
He also performed at the Grammies last year.
