Local students perform at state music competition
March 20, 2012
Music students from the Issaquah School District in grades five through 12 were selected to participate in the annual Washington Music Educators Association All-State Honor groups.
The Washington Music Educators Association sponsors a Youth Honor Chorus in grades five and six; junior all-state bands, choruses and orchestra for students in grades seven and eight; and high school jazz band, jazz choir, choirs, bands and orchestras for students in grades nine to 12.
Local honorees joined other students from Washington the weekend of Feb. 17 in Yakima. Students were selected after rigorous auditions. They then rehearsed together under the direction of nationally known conductors and performed final concerts.
The Pacific Cascade Middle School orchestra was the only middle school program chosen to perform as a whole at the Washington Music Educators Association conference.
