Steller Band Students have Stellar Results!

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.
