Congratulations to every one of our students who auditioned for regional choir, band, and orchestra on Saturday!  Here are some results….

Choir

Christian Seto, bass, was placed in the Regional Honors Choir!  Phillip Giandiletti is right now first alternate in the tenor section.  He will attend the festival, rehearse with the choir, and if one tenor drops out for some reason, will perform with the choir!  Julie Looker who auditioned for a spot in the alto section is at this moment third alternate!
