The last thing an orchestra musician expects to do is memorize music - that's for soloists. And even if orchestral members had reason to learn every note of a piece by heart, they wouldn't expect to dance around a stage while playing. Unless they happen to be in the University of Maryland Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble very much open to trying cool new things. One of the coolest is a project that debuted in 2012, when the orchestra performed Claude Debussy's "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun" from memory while carrying out movements designed by celebrated Baltimore-based choreographer Liz Lerman.

The student: Kevin McGovern, 11 School: Mount View Middle School Special achievement: Last year, he was accepted to play the bass in the Maryland Youth Symphony Orchestra. What he says about it: "I was the youngest person chosen since I was in elementary school and it was a high school orchestra. I auditioned without even knowing what it was for. Then Mr. Gatto, the director of the orchestra, said, `I want you to be in my orchestra.' I was excited, and my mom was substitute teaching in my school that day and Mr. Gatto told her and that was great."
