The Mount Si High School Music Department is proud to congratulate several Mount Si High School Band Students who represented MSHS at the Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) State Solo and Ensemble Festival and Competition on April 27 at Central Washington University in Ellensburg.

The MSHS Percussion Ensemble included Stephen Barber (12), Sam Brown (11), Tyler Bateman (12), Parker Grady (11), Ryan Horn (11), Julia Navidi (10), Matt Templin (11) and Justin Thompson (11).

“It was a growing experience musically as a whole and as a group. It was honestly a huge step for the program because this was the first ensemble to go to State from Mount Si,” Thompson said in a press release.

Tyler Bateman (12), a member of the State Bound percussion ensembles, was selected as a soloist in two events and Elijah Wray (10), baritone saxophonist was selected as soloist for Saturday’s competition.

“I am very proud of the dedication these students have made to their instruments and performing professional level literature,” added Bill Leather, Mount Si Band Director in a press release. “Performing at the Washington Music Educators Association State Solo and Ensemble Festival and Competition is a tremendous honor for these amazing students and our program.”
