Congratulations to a graduate of the studio, Eliza Block, currently at St Olaf College, who was just accepted to the National Syphony Orchestra Summer Institute with a full scholarship.

Congratulations also to high school sophmore, Ben Sahlin, lead trumpet of the Roosevelt Jazz Band, who will be travelling to New York to compete at Essentially Ellington.

Congratulations to Jacob Shaffer who won the Commencement Bay solo and ensemble competition and to Alex Moore who was runner up!

Congratulations to Nicholas Orndoff whose brass quintet took third place at the WMEA State Competition.

Congratulations to Nicholas, Jacob and Ben

Nicholas Orndoff was accepted to the All Northwest Band and Jacob Shaffer was placed in the All State Orchestra. Congratulations on this recognition of your hard work! This past September, Ben Sahlin won the lead trumpet chair of the famous Roosevelt Jazz Band!

Last year Nicholas was placed in the All State Orchestra and Jacob into the All State Band, though I forgot to brag about them at that time.
