Macey Hood is a senior at Francis Howell North High School. This is her first year as a member of the Saint Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra.
After playing Clarinet for one year Macey switched to Oboe and has never looked back. Macey enjoys playing the Oboe and often looks for opportunities to perform for her church. Macey has been playing Oboe for 5 years and also participates in her high school’s marching band as a drum major. She has also been a member of the Saint Charles County Youth Orchestra and Saint Charles Community College Band for 2 years and participated in the Metro Eight District Honor Band for 1 year.
Macey would like to thank her family for supporting her and coming to her concerts. She would also like to thank her private teacher Joy Floyd for pushing her and her high school band directors Robert Stegman and Dr Ryan Curtis for providing opportunities and the perfect environment for learning and growing.
When she’s not playing the Oboe, Macey takes dance lessons at Performing Arts Center and makes jewelry for fun. On the weekends she often finds herself out on the lake sailing with her family.
