Steller Band Sends Two Students to Prestigious Honor Groups
More great news for Steller Community came out last night!
Steller band students, Xavier Libbrecht on bassoon ,and Kamryn Lyons on flute, have been accepted to the 2021 All-Northwest Honor Ensembles. Kamryn made the Wind Symphony, which is an honor band for small schools in the Pacific Northwest Region. Xavier even earned a chair in two honor ensembles: The Symphony Orchestra and Wind Symphony. This is his second time being accepted. T
he Symphony Orchestra auditions are open to all schools in the Pacific Northwest Region. The audition process for all of the All-Northwest Honor Ensembles is rigorous and competitive. “I am super duper delighted that Xavier and Kamryn made the All-Northwest”, said Mr. Toba, the band director, “attaining a spot is a pinnacle for high school students in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. The hard work and dedication that Xavier and Kamryn have put paid a huge dividend. I just can not be more proud of these highly motivated students.” Because of the COVID pandemic, there will be no rehearsals or concerts for the All-Northwest Honor Ensembles. However, the students will still receive certificates.
