WESTPORT - A Westport girl has taken her talents to Nashville to play in the All-National Honor Orchestra.

Katie Zhou, a senior at Staples High School, has been playing the violin since she was 5 years old. Now 16, she's been selected to play with some of the most musically gifted students in the United States.

Zhou was nominated by her music teacher and had to submit an audition tape to be eligible for the ensemble.

The National Association for Music Education runs the concert, which will be held this Wednesday.
