They could compete as a solo, duets, trios, or in small group. Ashley Bouza performed in three different things this year. She was in an instrumental duet, a trio, and a small instrumental group of twelve people. “It was a very fun and nerve wrecking experience,” said Ashley Bouza.
This competition is a fun experience for all the contestants. Not only do they get to experience the challenge of being in a competition and competing against other students from other schools, but they get to do it with their friends. Sharen Schroeder said, “I played tenor sax in a group. It was really fun. I liked being able to play in a group and stick around with the people I hang out with.”
“Even though it was very nervewrecking, I never gave up and I practiced really hard to do my very best,” said Yanellie Reguiero. Our students worked really hard to prepare for this competition. They had been preparing for a long time.
David Rohrer III said, “ I was really nervous, but I think I did well.” He played a piece by Beethoven called “Country Dance” on the piano. Mrs.Thomson was his coach. He said she trained him well.
