The audition results for 2021 All-State Band are released. The All-State Band participation is one of the highest honors for high school band students in Alaksa. Steller will very well be represented by these highly accomplished musicians:
Bjorn V, sophomore, bass clarinet
Johnathen J, senior, tuba
Griffin L, senior, French horn
Xavier L, senior, bassoon
Kamyrn Ls, sophomore, flute
Furthermore, Griffin and Xavier are also accepted to play for the All-State Orchestra.
“This is by far the best year for Steller Band program, as far as the student achievements are concerned, ” said Mr. Toba, the band director. “Kamryn and Johnathen are alternates, which is still great because of the level of competitions for the auditions. Bjorn, Griffin, and Xavier earned the regular chairs. I just don’t know how to express my feeling now. These students did an exceptional job not only for themselves but also for the entire Steller Community,” said Mr Toba, Steller Band Teacher.
The All-State ensembles will rehearse from Thursday, November 18 through Saturday, the 20th, at Chugiak High School. The gala concert will be held on Saturday, November 20, at West High School. The admissions will be 10 dollars for adults, 5 dollars for students. Public is invited.
