Congratulations to Steller Band Students Jessie and Sebastien!
Steller band students, Jessie Hardison on flute and Sebastien Libbrecht on trumpet entered the ASD District Solo/Ensemble Festival on Saturday, February 23 at U.A.A. Jessie’s selection was “Musetta’s Waltz” from La Boheme by Giacomo Puccini, and Sebastien chose “1st Movement from Trumpet Concerto in E-flat Major” by Johann Hummel. Sebastien earned the superior rating, thus he will advance to the state solo/ensemble festival in May. Jessie received the excellent rating. “The District Solo/Ensemble Festival is competitive. Sebastien really put a lot of effort in to his playing, and it paid off. He has made state with solo three years in row, which is a great accomplishment”, said Mr. Toba, the band director. “Jessie did her best. I appreciate her time and effort she put to prepare.” U.A.A. will host the ASAA State Solo/Ensemble Festival on Friday, May 10th and Saturday, the 11th.
