A great big CONGRATULATIONS to our music students who participated in Solo & Ensemble on Tuesday!
Kaydance played Hunter's Chorus on her Bass Clarinet. She was complimented on her gorgeous tone, but had a hiccup in the performance landing her a 2nd place.
Peyton N. played To A Wild Rose on her clarinet and received a 1st place for her 1st time at Solo & Ensemble!
Rae nailed her Tenor Saxophone solo, Prelude and Energetico, for a first place medal.
Naima had two outstanding performances on both piano (Starlight) and a three mallet xylophone piece (Tres Blues) for two well deserved first place medals. Both these performances were on instruments she had never played before. Excellent skills making quick adjustments to new instruments!
Danika, Xander, Ashlyn and Rae debuted their first saxophone quartet performance together with Largo and Finale by Antonin Dvorak and it was sure a treat! Their intonation was fabulous and the judge encouraged them to keep playing as a quartet.
Rowan is going to STATE for his trumpet solo Concert Aria by Mozart. The judge had many compliments for him and highlighted how light and flowing Rowan is able to play the trumpet - a trait that many trumpet players struggle to obtain. He will be attending State Solo & Ensemble on Saturday, May 7 in Eau Claire.
