Congratulations to our GLHS musicians who participated in the regional solo and ensemble festival held at Onsted HS on Saturday, February 6.
Tim Lester played a French Horn solo he has been preparing for his college auditions and did a fabulous job earning a First/Superior rating.
Nick Plensdorf, Matt Pokornicki, Tim Lester, and Mike Molitz performed a Brass Quintet that received rave reviews from the judges and also earned a First/Superior rating.
Matt Pokornicki, Mike Molitz, and Jacob Tietsema performed a very difficult Trumpet trio that required quite a few new skills, did a wonderful job and earned a First/Superior rating.
Danny Hickey and Jacob Rapp performed a woodwind duet and I have to compliment these two gentlemen on being so self sufficient on getting their music ready with very little help from me. They earned a First/Superior rating.
Sean Hickey, Craig Ferry, and Megean Setla performed a woodwind trio and did a great job with their first high school Solo & Ensemble experience earning a Second/Excellent rating.
The four groups earning a First/Superior rating are eligible to attend State Solo and Ensemble on March 19.
