This past weekend was the State Solo Contest, held at CWU in Ellensburg. You may recall that we had some students win our regional solo contest back in March. They competed today against the best student musicians across the state of Washington, and did very well. We had 3 singers and 3 instrumentalists competing today, and here are the results:
- Tyler Johnson WON the Tenor category (the first Tahoma soloist I can remember winning the state contest in my 17 years here at THS)
- Katie Duffy came in 2nd in the Soprano category.
- Elizabeth Zosel came in 3rd in the Mezzo-soprano category.
- Stephen Shin came in 3rd in the Euphonium category.
These are huge accomplishments for our musicians! Please congratulate them if you have the chance.
