Steller Sends Three Students to the All-State Band and Orchestra, Again!!

The results from the All-State Band and Orchestra were released last Friday.  Three students, who are currently enrolled in the Steller band, were accepted.  They are Sebastien Libbrecht on trumpet; Xavier Libbrecht on bassoon; and Griffin Lindsay on French horn. “These students went through very competitive auditions”, said Mr. Toba, the band director. “Sebastien has already made the All-State in his freshman and sophomore years, so this is his third year in row, which is accomplished by only a few students.”  “Xavier and Griffin are only freshmen, so they beat a lot of upperclass men in the auditions. Xavier and Griffin have a promising future ahead in high school band”, said, Mr. Toba.  In addition, Sebasiten has earned the right to participate in the All-State Orchestra wind section as well.  “These All-Staters are role models not only for our younger students, but also high school students”, said Mr. Toba.  “I can not be more proud of these All-Staters.”  The All-State Band and Orchestra will rehearse at the Chugiak High School, from Thursday, November 15th through Saturday, the 17th. The All-State Gala Concert will be on Saturday, November 17th at the West High School, at 6 p.m. Admission is 10 dollars for adults, 5 dollars for students.  Public is invited.
