I am very proud to brag on the excellence of our young musicians in El Dorado Springs. Yesterday we traveled to Stockton High School to compete on the District Solo and Ensemble Contest. Out of the nine events taken, three received a 2 rating, and six received 1 rating, qualifying them for the State Solo and Ensemble contest that takes place in Columbia at the end of April.
The events that received 2 rating were:
Paige Floyd – Snare Drum Solo
Cody Rutledge – Trumpet Solo
Brass Quartet – Ethan Roberts, Alex Posey, Brock Kirbey and Tommy Higbie
The events qualifying for state and received a 1 rating are:
Tyler Goatley – Trumpet Solo
Courtney Lame – Bass Clarinet Solo
Caleb Alexander – Tenor Saxophone Solo
Hunter Jacobs – Clarinet Solo
Ethan Roberts – Trumpet Solo
Trumpet Trio – Tyler G., Ethan R. and Ashlie Cartwright
If you get a chance to see any of these students, please give them a big high-five and congratulations. They have put in so many hours to prepare for the contest. However, we are just getting started. Thank you for your continued support.
