Timothy Reynolds, a senior at Model High School, added the Kiwanis Music Showcase to his impressive list of musical victories over the weekend. Reynolds performed for the Kiwanis Club and received a $500.00 scholarship for winning the competition at the club’s weekly lunch meeting held on Monday, February 14. Reynolds will now be eligible for the Georgia district music competition. The Kiwanis Club is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child at a time. 

Reynolds recently won the high school division of the Rome Symphony Orchestra’s inaugural concerto competition held in the Ford Auditorium at Berry College. Reynolds and the collegiate division winner will perform their winning concerto pieces at the Rome Symphony Orchestra’s spring concert at the Rome City Auditorium on April 30, 2011. Reynolds has performed at numerous locations and functions in the Rome area and was selected to study violin in the Governor’s Honors Program in Georgia.

Reynolds plans to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, after graduating this spring. Reynolds said. “My dream is to become a performer and travel the world playing music for people to enjoy.” He plans to audition for the performance program at Berklee and hopes to combine with other students to form a performing group. 

Reynolds will also hold his own violin concert in March to showcase his talents and help him defray the cost of college. The concert will feature Reynolds playing a wide range of music from classical to hip hop on his violin. He will be joined by musician friends to perform at the Rome City Auditorium on Saturday, March 26 at 6:00 p.m. Reynolds will perform with Sinisa Ciric and Timia Reynolds; and he will play Blue Grass music with the group Russell, Roger and Phil. In addition to classical and hip hop, Reynolds will play gospel, blues and jazz on his violin. Admission to the concert is free but donations to Reynolds’ college fund will be accepted.
