Tahoma Choir Students place in State Solo/Ensemble

May 3, 2017 Leave a comment

The state solo & ensemble contest was held in Ellensburg this weekend.  In a contest that began with thousands of entries at regional events across the state, we had three vocal entries that won the regional event and competed at the state contest.  All 3 received superior ratings at the state contest.  Allie Orozco & Sophia Heinz came in 1st in state with their duet, and Sophia Heinz won 3rd place in the Soprano category!  This is quite a feat.  This is such a highly competitive event that in my 21 years at THS we have only had state contest winners 4 or 5 times, and not more than a dozen or so place in the top 3.  Please congratulate these girls if you see them.
