Woodinville High School instrumental and vocal students were honored recently with acceptance into the Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) All-State 2000 Band, Orchestra, and Choir.
Taking part in a strenuous three-day rehearsal schedule were band members Ian Jacobson (trombone), Caleb Hansen (trumpet), Brett Schmidt (euphonium); orchestra members Antesa Jensen (French horn), Sean Trovato (violin), Melissa Schoenack (bassoon); and choir members Rochelle Martin (soprano I), Amanda Carnes (soprano II), and Tonya Arnold (soprano II).
These WHS students are under the direction of Steve Stevens, choral program, and S. Mark Adamo, instrumental program.
Over 1,000 students from all over the state of Washington worked for four days in intensive rehearsals. This was culminated in two gala concerts held in the Sundome at the Yakima Fairgrounds. The students were chosen by audition from more than three thousand tapes sent to the committee.
Bothell students were Katy Shipe, Jovon Miller, Amanda Wilderson, Jason Fukura, Steve Waters, and Chrisopher Huber. Inglemoor students were Heidi Bazick, Thomas Redditt, Bradley Iverson-Long, Scott Brateng, Matt Henry, Sarah Montague, Maggie Fields, Veronica Reed, Jessica Bazick, and Gregory Mueller.
