The Wisconsin State Music Association (WSMA) Middle Level State Honors Music Project welcomed 316 students in grades 6-8 to perform in Waunakee, WI on Saturday, October 28, 2017. These students are many of Wisconsin’s most accomplished junior high and middle school music students (band, choir, and orchestra) and were selected from over 1,100 who auditioned for the program in April. Auditions included individual student performances and an ensemble class, taught by an Honors adjudicator. Selection was based on several elements of music performance.
Christian Life School was honored to have two of our students perform at this event. Lauralei Palmer (flute and piccolo), 9th grade, and Jacob Brown (violin), 8th grade. “Learning, interacting, and performing with other inspiring musicians from across the state under the direction of a nationally recognized conductor and some Wisconsin’s finest music educators, offers students an incredible enrichment opportunity,” said Erica Ruppert, WSMA program director.
