Both high-school and middle-school musicians in the Snoqualmie Valley School District have earned all-state honors recently.
Several middle school students were chosen for the 2013 Washington Music Educators Association Junior All-State groups. Along with the honor, they will have the opportunity to perform in the all-state concert in February.
Each student recorded and submitted an audition tape to be considered for the honor.
All-state musicians from Snoqualmie Middle School are: Georgia Schnepf, Keira Mix, Meghan McLaughlin and Julie Cleveland in youth choir; Alison Caswell and Hayla Takele in treble choir; and Tyler Bateman in band. From Twin Falls Middle School, Kaitlyn Rogers was named to mixed choir, and Adele Werner will play clarinet in the Rainier Band. Chief Kanim Middle School students honored were Claire Old Loohuis in mixed choir and Angel See, playing clarinet in the Baker Band.
At the high school level, Boone Hapke was one of eight bassoonists selected fro the All-Northwest Orchestra; and Christian Henriksen was chosen to play flute in the All-State Concert Band.
