Very proud of all my Knox JH students! They performed at the Conroe ISD Solo and Ensemble Contest this past Saturday and every single student scored a 1 rating for superior performance. Selections performed included Jean Baptiste Loeillet’s Sonata, “The Old Castle” from Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky, and Adagio and Allegro from Handel’s Sonata No. 1. Way to go!
Congratulations to Knox Junior High students Ehan Moss, Alejandro Chapellin, Jacob Pawlik, and Victoria Medrano who all placed in the District Band this past Saturday. There were about 30 saxophone students in total, so Knox JH was very well represented. Way to go!
Congratulations to Kingwood High School Students Luke Hammersmith and Dyron Powell, who placed in Wind Ensemble for the upcoming school year. Currently Dyron is a sophomore and Luke is a freshman so I am very proud of their work auditioning with students their age and older!
The saxophone students of Cypress Springs High School gave a wonderful recital featuring duets, quartets, and saxophone ensemble for the parents. Works ranged from Bach to current arrangements by Springs alumni Alex Perez. Go Springs!
Prometheus Saxophone Ensemble, a quintet of five Lone Star College saxophone students from multiple campuses, came together and premiered “Ups and Downs” - a work by LSC - Montgomery student Billy Sheffer. Supporting new music and collaborating with others, that’s how we do it!
