Spencer Ames doesn’t brag about his musical talents.

“My mother always told me to be humble and kind,” the Allen Community College freshman said. “I don’t say much about my skills on the trombone. I just play and have fun.”

So when it came time to audition for the Kansas Intercollegiate Orchestra, Ames found enjoyment even in the challenge of playing Igor Stravinsky’s “The Firebird Suite.”
