Park Rapids High School musicians make impression at Bagley
Members of the school's vocal and instrumental music programs earned best-in-site honors at all three performance sites on Nov. 2.
The Park Rapids Area High School music department had a strong showing at a solo music contest Wednesday, Nov. 2 in Bagley.
“We had 12 students competing in 14 events,” said band teacher John Cook, “and every single one of them made us proud and did a great job performing, showing great progress and improvement over a short time this fall. All of the scores and comments reflect that our musicians made a strong impression on the judges.”
Cook said all of the students received either excellent or superior ratings, the top two levels of achievement.
Receiving excellent ratings for their solos were Cyprian Little (voice), Tyler Hillukka (voice), Anika Kietzman (trombone), Janae Torma (flute), Kyla Mercil (flute) and Tabitha Guida (flute).
Receiving superior ratings were Wyatt Koskela (trumpet), Harmony Trygstad (clarinet), Jillian Neubauer (flute), Levi Trygstad (voice and trombone), Jack Worner (voice and clarinet) and Cate Worner (bass clarinet).
In addition, Park Rapids students claimed best-in-site honors at all three performance sites, with Jack Worner and Levi Trygstad earning the honors at the vocal sites and Cate Worner at the instrumental site.
