Three Grosse Pointe South High School students were honored for their original music compositions Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Michigan Music Education Association’s Honors Composition Concert.

Each student — Hannah Ayrault, Alyssa Campbell and Conner Reinman — performed his composition in front of a large audience at the Ambassador Ballroom of the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids. Ayrault, a junior, played piano and sang her original song, “Fairy Tales,” while Campbell, freshman, also played piano for her work, “Gypsy Revelations.” Reinman, a junior, conducted family and friends in singing his vocal composition, “Stars.”

The students were among the 21 winners selected for the 2013 concert, which took place during the Michigan Music Conference.

Jonathan Valente, of Grosse Pointe Farms, was honored as well for his composition, “Sudden Sunset.”
