MSHS musicians on all-state band

Two Mount Si High School students were selected by the Washington Music Education Association for All-State Bands.

Boone Hapke, bassoon, was selected to play in the concert band at the state’s annual concert, set for February 20 in Yakima. Matt Bumgardner, trombone, was chosen for the jazz band. Mount Si band leader Adam Rupert noted that the jazz band features only 17 musicians, and that Bumgarder is one of only four trombone players in the state chosen for All-State honors.

Mount Si had five students audition for All-State.
