LJH Orchestra Students Earn Gold at State

LJH+Orchestra+Students+Earn+Gold+at+State

This past weekend 3 orchestra students attended the State Solo/Ensemble contest.  It’s a very rare thing to have kids from the Junior High level be able to make it to state.  

 

Kyleigh Weiler-Kara, Alex DeJarnett and Juan Salas took a violin trio and got a Gold rating!

 

Juan Salas took a violin solo and received a Gold rating WITH DISTINCTION!!!  His score was a 10, meaning he only missed 1/2 a point in 2 categories. This is a huge achievement since the judging is much tougher at the state level.
