Steller band student, Sebastien Libbrecht, entered the ASD District Solo/Ensemble Festival on February 24 at UAA. He plays the trumpet and his selection was Movement One from Sonata for Trumpet and Piano by Paul Hindemith. He earned the superior rating, thus he will advance to the ASAA State Solo/Ensemble Festival in spring. “Sebastien practices regularly and wisely,” said Mr. Toba, the band director. “He is a mentor for our younger band students as well. We are very lucky to have Sebastien in band.” The state solo/ensemble festival will be Friday and Saturday, May 11-12, at UAA.
